Finally, day twelve of The 12 Days of Christmas Pilot Gift Guide has arrived. We’ve seen some big wishes (sorry Vincent, I just can’t afford to buy that Cirrus SR-22 for you this year), we’ve seen some practical gifts, and we’ve seen affordable stocking-stuffers. For the final day of Christmas, allow me to suggest decorating the house with quality aviation artwork.
Vintage Wooden Propellers. Every pilot and aviation enthusiast secretly wants a wooden propeller hanging from the wall. It’s a universal symbol of flight and bespeaks a simpler time where stick and rudder meant everything and barnstormers were regarded as hometown heroes.
Aviation Art Prints. What better way to showoff your interest in aviation than bits of aviation artwork? I’m particularly fond of Jack Connelly’s classic World War II paintings. PilotMall also features a great selection of art prints evoking the freedom of the golden age of general aviation.
Warbird Nose Art. Looking for something to hang in the hangar or garage? Sporty’s comes through with their series of aviation nose-art panels. And for the real collector, you could get the Frenesi panel, personally signed by such legends as Chuck Yeager, Bud Anderson, Thomas Hayes, Arval Roberson, John Kirla, and Charles Weaver.
From all of the writers participating in the Twelve Days of Chistmas pilot gift guide, I’d like to wish you a Merry Christmas. Fly safe, and please – keep the ice off your wings!
This post is part of an ongoing series of aviation gift ideas by a multitude of aviation bloggers: “The Twelve Days of Christmas“.
