Standard Kit Equipment

Oregon Aero High-G Seats RV-10

The Oregon Aero High-G Seat has been standard kit equipment for the popular Van’s Aircraft RV-10 front seats since the homebuilt was introduced in 2003. The maximum-comfort, low-profile seat tilts forward for rear access and reclines to accommodate pilot preference for position. The lumbar cushion is pilot-adjustable.

“We believe the Oregon Aero seat offers an excellent combination of safety and comfort for the RV-10,” says Dick VanGrunsven, founder and president of Van’s Aircraft.

Oregon Aero Seat Cushions are optional for the RV-10 rear seats. We can upholster both front and rear seats or provide complete interior services.
