Fly’n Things


If you ever wondered why I named my blog flynthings, I hope this post answers it : I am crazy about all things related to flying.

What do women pilots, analysts, economists, researchers and other staff do in their spare time?

Every time I visit Oshkosh I love to scour the fly mart for cool aviation themed stuff: such as my very cool airplane shaped cutting board, or my newly acquired potholders, I’ll rather be flying license plate, or key chain ring. Not to mention my airplane fork, airplane earrings, bracelet, locket, pin, letter opener and so much more.
bitsandpiecesEvery time I visit an Airport Shop I love to buy aviation themed things.

There are many online stores such as Sporty’s, AvShop, Airport Shoppe and possibly several others where you can find not only useful tools and gadgets to aid a pilot, but also cool aviation themed things: license plates, key rings, jewelery, t-shirts, aprons, sweatshirts, decorative arts such as pens, pen knifes, pen holders, stained glass decorative arts, paintings (original and re-prints), clocks and so much more.

This year, we have found and started a cool new project: airplane themed quilting projects as part of our annual CFC fundraising: iPad covers, potholders, aprons and so much more.

Make cool aviation themed fun stuff 🙂

This year, I am learning to make cool flynthings that I normally scour the web to buy online, or in Aviation Shoppes, or in Oshkosh.

    So very true! I make airplane totes, make up bags, luggage tags, pillows, hot iron cases. It’s definitely an addiction! I do want to knit a stuffed airplane or airplane blanket but have yet to find a good design!

    That’s awesome. This is my first attempt. Not sure I have the patience for it 🙂
