Airplane “Trench Art”

Check-out our aluminum P-51 Mustang and Spitfire aircraft “trench art” reproductions. Trench art, as it is now known, was created by soldiers whiling away their time in the trenches. We suspect that these airplanes were originally crafted by airplane mechanics stationed at an airfield in the British Isles. These aluminum aircraft make great pilot gifts for under $50.00 and are ideal airplane decor. P-51 Mustang Airplane Trench Art

Pilots to Strike

What happens here stays here. Not this time Las Vegas. The pilots of Allegiant Air are planning to strike on Thursday possibly affecting 250 flights and 186,000 passengers. The Las Vegas-based airline, which is also one of the most profitable airlines by flying to smaller cities, is going to court to try to stop the strike. The dispute is over crew scheduling and some benefits. This is a busy weekend in Las Vegas with folks traveling for Easter weekend and the NCAA basketball championship games. Allegiant Air Strike

NASA Electric Powered Plane

Is an 18 propeller plane in our future? NASA through the LEAPTech (Leading Edge Asynchronous Propellers Technology project is developing an efficient electric powered aircraft. Using a 31 foot carbon composite wing, 18 propellers, each with its own small engine, will be powered by its own lithium iron phosphate battery. Cruising speed is planned to be at between 200-230 mph. Interesting is that each propeller will be able to operate independently at various speeds. Wow, we wonder what that cockpit panel will look like!

Airplane Wing Coffee Table

This Airplane Wing Coffee or Cocktail Table is fabulous airplane decor. Crafted from aluminum in the shape of an airplane wing it even includes the rivets for an authentic aviation look. This table is an ideal gift for a pilot, or anyone looking to decorate in an “industrial-look” motif. Place this airplane furniture in an aviator man cave, FBO lounge area, airplane hangar, or an airplane themed room to create a cool focal point. Airplane Wing Coffee Table

Captain & First Officer are Related

Does the desire to fly run in one’s blood? This father and daughter whom are pilots and both fly for American Airlines think so. Yesterday was their first flight together since Jen Byrne began flying for America a year ago. Scott Byrne was the captain and 28 year old Jen flew right seat as first officer. Jen said she knew she wanted to be a pilot since she was 8-years old. Kudos to the father who inspired & to the daughter that followed her dream!
