Quest Aircraft (Booth MD-032B) of Sandpoint, Idaho, is displaying one of its Kodiak turboprop singles outfitted with the new “Summit Executive” interior this week at the Sun ’n’ Fun Fly-In in Lakeland, Fla. The new interior, which is expected to receive STC approval in the second quarter, features reclining club-four seating, along with folding tables, forward cabinets, better soundproofing and other amenities. It builds on the Timberline and Tundra interiors announced in 2012 that included composite panels, storage pockets, cupholders, improved headrests and center pedestal closeouts.
All three interior options—Summit, Timberline and Tundra—are available in beige and gray color schemes. The Kodiak on display at Sun ’n’ Fun has the gray Summit interior in a five-place cabin configuration. The Summit interior will be available on new-production Kodiaks and as retrofit on in-service aircraft.
