- If the pilot in your life dresses up for work, he might enjoy a polyester tie featuring sketches of helicopters in a repeating pattern. Another tie option features a repeating bar code with the words "Helicopter Pilot" where the numbers should be. Pilots who like to wear ball caps can show their enthusiasm for specific helicopters with a variety of embroidered hats. Featured models include the UH-60 Black Hawk, AH-64 Apache, CH-47 Chinook and Robinson R44. "Trucker-style" caps feature the words "Helicopter Pilot" or more detailed messages like "Yes, I'm a helicopter pilot. No, I won't break you out of jail."
- A variety of 16 x 20 inch hand-created illustrations are available for your pilot friend to display on his wall. Each is composed of thousands of ink dots that form sketches of specific helicopter models, including the Bell AH-1G Cobra, Boeing Littlebird, Sikorsky SH-60 Seahawk and the Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk.
For the Car
- Your pilot can outfit her car with a silver license plate featuring a Boeing Apache, Sikorsky Black Hawk or Sikorsky Executive Transport helicopter. A frame that fits around the pilot's license plate features the words: "Danger: Beware of Helicopter Pilot." Your key chain choices include ribbons that say "Remove Before Flight" on one side and the names Apache, Chinook or Black Hawk on the other.
- Your pilot can keep time with a silver desk clock shaped like a Bell Longranger helicopter. Helicopter pilots who love to cook might enjoy an apron featuring a blueprint of the Robinson R22 or R44 chopper. You can order the apron in white, khaki or yellow. An apron featuring the words "Helicopter pilot off duty" comes in the same colors.
