Lee can polish your windows posh at Oshkosh
President and CEO of Lee Aerospace Jim Lee is celebrating three decades at the helm of the company this year. He had the vision for CoolView some time ago and is delighted to see his technology adopted widely.
Lee Aerospace has received FAA PMA approval for its CoolView windows on the Beechjet, and will be offering window services at Oshkosh.

Lee Aerospace has gained recognition for its CoolView window technology by being awarded Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) for the side cockpit windows on Beechjet 400, 400A and 400T types.

“The interest in CoolView has been overwhelming,” enthuses chief engineer Joel Webber. “I think as a follow-on to the previous PMAs we have in the aftermarket, pilots and passengers alike are specifically asking for this technology on their aircraft which has given us a long list of projects to work on this year.

“We are known for responding to our customers' needs and solving their issues. The CoolView technology has been a game changer in the industry and actually originated from a customer need.”

Celebrating his 30th anniversary as president and CEO of Lee Aerospace, Jim Lee had the vision for this technology years ago: “We have taken Lee Aerospace through a number of phases over the past 30 years, from simple air gap windows to laminated windows with complex curves and window assemblies,” he explains. “Now we are moving into some really exciting programmes that incorporate our newest technology, not only in the cabin and side cockpit windows, but also in our upcoming forward-facing, heated glass programmes, and CoolView will be an option on all of them.”

The company is now OEM to a number of major aircraft manufacturers: “We have something new planned for Oshkosh this year,” Lee adds. “In addition to having our newest CoolView technology on display in one of the King Air C90 aircraft in operation, which will be on site to view, we will also be offering window polishing at AirVenture.”

Lee Aerospace has been named an authorised service provider for EAA AirVenture attendees who would like to have their aircraft windows polished while taking in the sights at Oshkosh, Wisconsin next month. “This is the first year we are offering the window polishing services at Oshkosh,” continues Lee. “We will have a mobile team of our experienced technicians right there at the show. Who wouldn't want to have their windows polished and ready for take off from Wittman at the end of the week?”
