TALKEETNA, Alaska — Above Alaska Aviation has been named Poly-Fiber’s first-ever factory-approved installation center.
After years of phone calls to the Poly-Fiber factory from aircraft owners requesting recommendations for a quality facility to have their aircraft recovered, Jon Goldenbaum, president of Consolidated Aircraft Coatings, has decided to create a network of factory-approved installation centers across the country.
Above Alaska Aviation has been tapped as the first factory-approved Poly-Fiber installation center of this network.
The concept to create a network of quality installation centers came about at the 2013 Great Alaska Aviation Gathering, put on by The Alaska Airmen’s Association, at the Anchorage international Airport, according to company officials. It was here that Goldenbaum inspected the workmanship of a PA-18 Super Cub that had been recently recovered by Above Alaska Aviation. Goldenbaum was so impressed that he selected Above Alaska Aviation to be the launch installation center.
A list of factory-approved installation facilities will be made available on the Poly-Fiber website. You will find facilities by state with phone numbers and websites listed. More facilities will be added in coming months.
Poly-Fiber (formerly Stits) is an all-vinyl Poly-Fiber system. Consolidated Aircraft Coatings also produces the Ceconite covering system.
Above Alaska Aviation offers a variety of general aviation services, including maintenance, initial and advanced flight training, and Part 135 air taxi services. With extensive experience in fabric-covered aircraft, Above Alaska Aviation has been using the Poly-Fiber system for more than 12 years. It offers free repair estimates, as well as a quality workmanship guaranty.
