Sporty’s Continues its Christmas Tradition
Sporty’s Crystal Christmas Ornament is an annual tradition for pilots, flight schools, FBOs, and aviation enthusiasts. This year’s ornament, the 39th in the series, features the classic Aeronca Champ.
Produced in large volumes in the late 1940s, the simple high wing design with fabric-covered wings was used primarily for training. The Champ was one of the few taildragger airplanes that could be flown solo from the front seat, which greatly improved the visibility for the pilot in command. With Aeronca’s Cincinnati roots, the Champ is a favorite for many of the Sporty’s flight crew.
Sporty’s custom-etched Aeronca Champ includes a bright red ribbon for hanging and is boxed for gift giving. Sporty’s 2023 Crystal Christmas Ornament [9833A] is available for $24.95 and may be purchased at sportys.com or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS.
