Vans RV10 Build Complete

Holding four passengers plus plenty of baggage room, this model of Vans RV line is well suited for family flying and offers a range over 1,700NM. Click the link to see the full build photos.

About H.O. Aircraft


Having been in the aircraft restoration business for over 30 years, we have acquired experience in every facet of the restoration process. We have taken planes after crashing in the ocean and restored/rebuilt them to excellent condition. Our expertise ranges across the restoration process from fabricating/welding individual parts to completing ground-up show quality restorations (and everything in between!)

With years of experience under our wing, we have worked on standards such as Piper Super Cubs and Aviat Huskys to one-of-a-kinds like a Kruetzer Tri-Motor and a Stinson Tri-Motor airliner. Rest assured H.O. Aircraft's expertise is unquestioned! Check out our projects page to view these amazing restorations. 

We invite you to look through our site to see what we have to offer. Whatever service your project requires - sheet metal forming, fabrication & welding, fabric covering & paint, general maintenance or a complete ground up restoration - our team has the capabilities to get it done with a quality of workmanship that is second to none. We also offer a line of STC & experimental products for Piper Super Cubs & Cessna Aircraft. We look forward to working with you and employ you to contact us to discuss your next airplane project.

Complete Restorations

H.O. Aircraft was founded to restore antique aircraft. While our services have expanded since then, our commitment to restoring antique, warbird and rare aircraft hasn't. Let us know your plans and we will take care of your restoration plans.

Experimental Aircraft Builder Assistance

In addition to complete aircraft restorations, our other passion is building/re-building experimental and certified aircraft. We can help with a complete custom build or assist with pieces of a bigger project. Our common builder assists include Piper Cubs, Vans, and more.

Our facility and engineers service all engine types, trained in composite, metal and wood airframes, extensive experience within avionics, ability to assist with fabric/paint, and many more. Whether it’s an annual inspection, simple maintenance or complex repair, we can help.

Avionics, Electronics & Upgrades

H.O. Aircraft is a supplier and approved to provide various upgrades for certified and experimental aircraft. From digital avionic panels, legacy steam guages, new lighting, props and even complete engine replacements, we can upgrade your aircraft. We have even developed (and received STC) for multiple upgrades including our award-winning IO-390 Super Cub (King Cub) upgrade kit.

Paint, Fabric & Fabrication

Having restored aircraft dug-up from a frozen Alaskan lake, our facility is built to provide any level of restore, service or project. We provide custom fabrication for wood, composite and metal structures. Our facility includes a custom-built paint booth and our team are experts in fabric works + livery designs.
