An aviation decoration is a must on a pilot’s Christmas tree, and nothing helps the season to be jolly like the Sporty’s Annual Christmas ornament. In 2011, aviation’s always awaited arboreal addition arrives in the lovely form of a Beech Staggerwing. The limited-edition ornament of the classic aircraft that first flew in 1932 includes a bright red ribbon for hanging, and is boxed for giving as a gift. The ornament (9833-11A) is available for $24.95 online, or by calling 800/SPORTYS. While you’re shopping, add the 2011 limited edition AOPA Holiday Ornament, a 1940 Waco, to your list. It’s available through the AOPA Store.
