Rudder & Elevator Curtains

Rudder Curtain

Yes, you read right – elevator & rudder curtains. Not the kind that get put in elevator walls to prevent damage when furniture, etc. is being moved in and out of buildings, but “elevator curtains” that are fitted in the elevator and rudder areas of aircraft, specifically for Convair aircraft.

These jobs require me making a pattern from sometimes very old, very ripped samples that had previously been in airplanes, then making new ones – usually ten at a time -requiring 12 hours a piece.

Just wanting to showcase some of the more “interesting” work I’ve done. This is not likely something the average customer would require, but the client, Kelowna Flightcraft, is not the average customer. 🙂
