Quest Aircraft Co. unveiled new interiors — Tundra and Timberline — for the Kodiak at last week’s AirVenture. The interiors will be available on 2013 models.
Development work has also progressed on the Summit executive interior, which will be available in mid-2013, company officials said.
“We have replaced the current Kydex panels with composite panels, which will contribute to a weight reduction and should improve the useful load. We have also refined the headliner and enhanced the soundproofing,” said Steve Zinda, director of sales and marketing. “New amenities for the Timberline include storage pockets to the sidewall beside each chair and cupholders, both in the cabin and the cockpit. We have also restyled the cockpit chairs in both interiors to include an improved headrest and have added center pedestal closeouts.”
Customers will be able to select from two different color variants in the Tundra and Timberline. Both new interiors can be installed in existing Kodiaks with minor modifications, he said.
Kodiaks are in service with charter operators, small businesses, personal owners, skydiving operations, U.S. and international governments, and humanitarian organizations. Several Kodiaks on floats have been delivered, including nine float-equipped KODIAKs to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
