Boeing 777 Business Class Seats

For the aviation fan who has everything… I’ll bet he or she doesn’t have a pair of Boeing 777 Business Class Seats!

Just imagine relaxing in your home theater, man-cave or TV room in these authentic, lightly used airliner seats. Order a cold beer and peanuts from your significant other, run a vacuum cleaner nearby while you try to watch a movie. Wake up with nice kink in your neck or back… Just like a real airplane ride!  Available from BoeingStore.com, a pair of these will set you back $2450.00 USD.

Corsair Pedal Plane from QualityPedalCars

QualityPedalCars.com has a really great selection of pedal planes for kids. I would have loved one of these! The prices seem pretty reasonable. A cute little biplane ride-on starts at $135. The Corsair peddler pictured here is $476. If you’re an aviation nut, there’s a pretty good chance your love of flying is rubbing off on your kids; they’ll feel like Chuck Yeager riding a pedal plane!

For airline fans, there are two stores that are absolutely essential for gift buying.

Let’s Shop Airbus and The Boeing Store are the two heavy hitters. Both are loaded with affordable, official gear that will let you show off your favorite jet. Stickers, patches, watches, T-shirts, jackets, toys, lanyards… and of course, aircraft models. They have it all.
