I was wondering, is there a good way to decorate a room aviation-style without making it look like an elementary kid's room? I am not in need of models, just any decor ideas that look professional or technical, but within a reasonable price range. I guess I could get one of those propeller fans! Wink I am kind of thinking about ways to post old VFR maps up or somethng akin to that. Pictures for the walls is easy. Can have that covered in no time. Just need some ideas for shelf accents. Thanks!

How about getting an old tire, say from a 737, lay it flat on the ground, put a glass plate over it and voila, a one of a kind coffee table! You have to spray the tire with some sort of protectant though, because of the rubber smell.

Well...how about this...: Go to your local airport and look for the GA-hangar.
Give them a call and ask whether you could optain any unservicalbe ADI, VOR Alitmeters etc.....???

Just a thought...I did it once to make a present for a travel agency.

I guess my room would be finished if I could get my hands on a full-size 777 simulator! Then I would never get anything done. I would just sleep in it on long hauls!

Go to www.sportys.com and visit the Wright Brothers shop. There are a set of 6 scotch glasses from classic airlines like pan am, eastern, etc. I got them for xmas and they make fantastic shelf accents

I did see an brochure online in .pdf format, and they're selling aluminum bulkhead/stringers to actual size 737, 767, 777 cockpit size (767 and 777 cockpit was in the works as the brochure was printed).
It stated it comes in a package and you assemble it together with bolts.
It was intended to be a simulator cockpit structure like.
I think the price was around under a grand. I don't remember the name of the company but it started with a T.
Pretty sure the Boeing line simulator structure/stringer set is ready by now.

Most pilot shops keep and give away for free outdated but never used sectionals. I have the PHX sectional on my wall. Another guy in my residence hall has the entire southwestern seaboard made out of 15+ sectionals taped together!!! Looks awesome!!!  Wow!

I have several of those if you're interested.

Personally I've always wanted to grab an old cessna tire, and put a clock where the rim would go and hang it in the wall. And of course a prop would be nice...  Wink

The cockpit posters from Boeing always seem to impress. I've got the 737-700 on my wall above the head of my bed. Looks quite nice I must say.

Check 'em out...
