When you’re a pilot, even your Christmas tree reflects your love of aviation. Sporty’s Christmas Ornament is an annual tradition for pilots, flight schools, FBOs and aviation enthusiasts. The Van’s RV-12 is the star of this year’s elegantly etched crystal ornament.

The latest model from famed aircraft designer Richard VanGrunsven, the RV-12 is a two-seat all-metal side-by-side airplane with a large cabin and superb visibility. It’s also the 2014 Sporty’s sweepstakes airplane.

“We chose the RV-12 for this year’s ornament since Van’s has more than 8,000 completed RV aircraft over the past 40 years,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “It’s amazing that an airplane originally manufactured on a small farm in Oregon has led to a global following with RVs based in 45 countries.”

This custom-etched Ornament includes a bright red ribbon for hanging and is boxed for gift giving. Sporty’s 2013 Crystal Christmas Ornament [9833A] is available for $24.95 and may be ordered at sportys.com or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS.
