The average turn time for a complete upholstery job on a standard seven to 10-passenger aircraft, including crew seats, jump seats, potty seats and miscellaneous pockets and curtains, could range from seven to 10 days up to five or six weeks.

The most popular interior colors are muted shades of blue, gray and beige. Leather is popular because it lends a certain status look to interiors.

Installing these materials without complying with the test procedures outlined in AC 23-2, 4(b). If I had obtained test results from a testing lab which uses those procedures, and these test results were acceptable, I would be in compliance with FAR 23 regulations.
