Many thanks to the Consolidated Aircraft Coatings Company for their generous donation of dope and fabric that will move the WAAAM museum forward in its project to get the 1912 Parker Curtiss Pusher flying again.

Consolidated Aircraft Coatings is based at historic Flabob Airport in Riverside, CA. Flabob is a major center of antique aircraft restoration and flying with one of the few grass runways in Southern California; see www.flabob.org. 

Consolidated manufacturers three of the major brands of fabric covering products: Ceconite, Randolph dopes, and Stits Poly Fiber. The factory was built originally by Ray Stits to support Poly Fiber, but mergers and acquisitions resulted in all products being manufactured at the Flabob plant. 

Consolidated has many young employees who grew up at Flabob, attending our aviation high school, learning aircraft restoration and learning to fly. Our technical support staff is manned by young mechanics and technicians who are expert at fabric covering, painting and general restoration, our goal is to pass on the skills required to restore, maintain and fly antique aircraft.

The company president is a dedicated aviator who actively flies a variety of aircraft from Cubs to DC-3s.

Consolidated is committed to supporting aviation museums across the world, donating products whenever possible to worthy restorations.
