Description
Airplane Fan: The Tigershark Warbird Airplane Fan is better than ever! This Tigershark Airplane Ceiling Fan is a replica of the original "Flying Tiger" Tiger Shark squadron airplane nose art on the P-40 Warhawk / Tomahawk / Kittyhawk aircraft flown during WW II. In addition to having a fun, novelty style, it is an exceedingly well-built, quality ceiling fan that comes with a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty.

So what are the parameters of a first-rate ceiling fan? To start, a large motor makes for longer life, greater efficiency, and better air circulation. The Tigershark Ceiling fan has a powerful (153x12 mm motor size), yet silent, high-efficiency motor that uses less than 1 amp of energy. Even at high speeds this equates to using less energy than 75-watt light bulb. Now add blades that are matched to exact weight and 15° pitch to greatly increase airflow. The 3 propeller-shaped blades on the Tigershark Ceiling Fan have about a 44" blade span. The pitch is important because with greater airflow movement the ceiling fan will make the air cooler during the summer and help reclaim lost heat from the ceiling during the winter.

Other quality key features of this fan are:

  • A heavy-duty motor for smooth quiet performance
  • A 16-pole motor with 2,000+ feet of copper windings for greater efficiency and smoother performance
  • Multiple capacitor to control starting and running
  • Die-cast aluminum rotors for cool running
  • Stamped steel housing which is approximately 17" Heavy-duty bearings that never need oiling because they are permanently lubricated
  • 3-speed reversible switching for summer and winter
  • Factory installed gaskets to reduce noise and vibration

    If that weren’t enough, the Tigershark Ceiling Fan has an integrated light kit in the nose, sorry the bulb is not included. The body of the fan measures about 17 inches from ceiling to nose cone.

    What to look for when buying an authentic replica airplane ceiling fan.

    We think that what sets Tailwinds apart is our extensive collection of quality airplane gifts that celebrate the joy of flight. Our airplane ceiling fans really represents this theme. Each of these magnificent beauties are painstakingly assembled. When you purchase aviation ceiling fans for display in your living room or den, you want a piece that enhances your decor. These distinctive warbird ceiling fans are art that will match your decorating taste and stand out as collector’s items. Often conversation pieces and collector's items but always first and foremost, a great addition to any interior design.

    Also, since we are all in a time where energy has become an issue for both the environment and the pocket book, the American invented ceiling fan offers a solution that is both green and economical. Ceiling fans deliver more warmth in the winter months and cool down environments during hot summer months. According to a Florida Power & Light study, ceiling fans can save 40% on cooling energy costs. And they are efficient using less energy of than a 75 watt light bulb.

    Nancy's tip:: "The more blades on the fan, the more efficiently air is circulated and the quieter the fan." On most fans, the summer setting is a counter-clockwise rotation, viewed from below. In the winter, fans run in reverse (clockwise), reclaiming lost heat from the ceiling. They provide an even, comfortable temperature by moving hot air back down to the living areas below. They can make 80 degrees seem like 72 and in the winter do the reverse.

    This Fan is Beyond Awesome
    May 28, 2013
    Saw this fan on the ceiling at the Palm Springs Aviation Museum. My car-guy friend has a "57 Chevy" patterned to look like a P-40, so this fan was a "must have". The quality of this fan is outstanding and the appearance is incredible. This fan is first class in every respect: materials, balance, quietness, detail -- it is something that every P40 fan should have somewhere in their home. I am more than pleased that I bought this fan and I know it will provide hours of comfort and pleasure. It is everything the ad claims it to be and then some. Tailwinds was a superb company to deal with.
    Pros:
    Quality materials, quiet, easy to install, attractive.
    Cons:
    Only positives from this reviewer.

    P-40 Tigershark fan
    January 20, 2013
    Installed in Aviation style home pub. The ceiling the fan is attached to is covered in white silk parachute which really highlights the ceiling fan markings. The fan naturally occupies the focal point and all and sundry who have entered the bar have been amazed at the fan.
    Pros:
    Have a selection of 2-10 Watt LED lights ranging white, red blue, green gives flexibility to mood settings. Most countries are 220V not 110V, but very easy to install fan and fit step down transformer
    Cons:
    Due to delivery service oriented to U.S. Had order delivered to LA, and self transport to Durban, South Africa to install it in my house in Kwa Zulu Natal.

    Really sets are plane themed room off... big hit! Plus it is high quality, very quite.
    Pros:
    Easy install, looks great, runs quiet
    Cons:
    I wished the nose light was led instead of a 40w bulb, not much light.
