I'm considering ordering seats from Flightline Interiors for my Cruzer. They are the ones that made the seats for the One Week Wonder.

Unfortunately I have never sat in the One Week Wonder and although I'm sure the seats are comfortable, the bottom cushion looks very thick and I'm wondering how the headroom would be for a guy (me) who is 6'1" tall?

Have any tall guys sat in the One Week Wonder?

While I'm not 6' (5'11), I'm more "torso" than legs. As a result, I'm very sensitive to cars, planes, etc., that might have reduced headroom. There is a lot of headroom in the Cruzer (have sat in it 3 years in a row at Oshkosh; bought plans this year). Note that the factory demo has the adjustable seats which, according to Sebastian, reduce headroom by about 1.5-2".  Oh, and my neighbor/CFI is 6'5 and *he* sat in it as well. He's fine with it. (But he's all legs!)

I sat in the one week wonder when it was at the AOPA flying at the Anoka County Airport.  I'm 6'2" and I don't recall headroom being an issue.   It not your height that the issue, it your head to butt height that matters.  IE, sit on the floor with your back against the wall and measure from the floor to the top of your head.  It all depends on where you "bend".
