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 48" 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. Maximum 60-watt bulb. 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.

    Great looking fan! Took away one star because the instructions included with the fan were likely from a prior version of the fan and did not match up completely with the parts.

    Happy with the fan!

    Replaced Original P-40 Tigershark Ceiling Fan with the new P-40 Tigershark Ceiling Fan...
    June 1, 2020
    The Original P-40 Tigershark Ceiling Fan wiring in the head shorted and burned the light bulb socket. The new fan itself was not difficult to install except I had to use a heavy 8 foot step ladder to remove the older all metal P-40 Tigershark Ceiling Fan. The new P-40 Tigershark Ceiling Fan outer shell is plastic and the mounting plate is a completely new design.

    The new fan body is shorter, fortunately I still had the fan blade clearance from the sloping sides of the vaulted ceiling. Also, I changed the fan chain pulls form the standard set to my 30-06 bullet shell pulls.
    The new LED candelabra socket should work better with a limited 4.5 amp bulb that I used (500 Lumens/60 watt equivalent). The new P-40 Tigershark Ceiling Fan is a bit lighter than the original P-40 Tigershark Ceiling Fan... My situation with the vaulted ceiling; I had to use an offset Phillips screw driver to install the fan body to the base attached to the ceiling electrical box.

    I've always wanted a fan like this and when I found one, I had to have it. The only change I made was to mount it on the wall!! Just wish I was a bit more artistic so I could paint the rest of the plane on the wall with it!

    Installation was easy, looks great, runs great. What else do you need??

    This fan is amazing. The Warhawk matches my son's military-themed bedroom perfectly. The fan itself moves way more air than expected. The price was the best to be found. And even with the COVID-19 pandemic in full swing, the shipping was incredibly fast. Couldn't be happier with this fan and with Tailwinds. Thank you!

    Great product at reasonable price. Looks great and was fairly easy to install. Only wished light was a little brighter, although not bad. I'm sure it can be resolved with some brighter LED solutions.
    Easy install. Great overall looking and quality product! A must for an aviation Warbird enthusiast! Poor lighting and wished fan blades were shaped a little more authentic looking, although still looks great!

    February 15, 2020
    The fan arrived quickly! Instructions were easy to follow for assembly but my issue came as whom ever wired my house didn't follow proper protocol of black and white for the light switch operation. They had them reversed in my house and I couldn't figure out why I kept blowing the the breaker every time I went and hooked up the light. Worked beautiful once I figured that out! Great addition to my "Navy" room.
    Good looking product! Not certain how you are supposed to mount safety cable on a stud if your ceiling is finished?

    A nice addition to my cave. Looks nice, installs easy, attracts special notice from visitors.
    Good quality, looks, and functionality. Caution on the glass light shade - I was too heavy-handed when rotating the shade into position and it broke. Suggest lightly rotating shade into position and maybe adding some clear tape on the backside to discourage shade from vibrating loose. Seems like the shade would be better/safer if made with plastic.

    Great looking product. After installing this fan it didn't work. I was able to diagnose that a wiring "crimp", in the switch area had not been done good enough to hold 4 white wires. After re-doing the crimp, the fan works great. Maybe something to watch in your QC department.
    good looking not very good QC

    My husband loved it!

    I love the way it looks and so does my husband. We installed it in our living room, so it can be a conversation piece.
    Looks great, works great. The light is pretty small and provides a nice glow, but it is a little too dim for my tastes. Luckily we have extra lighting already. As our previous overhead light was too bright! Now with this fan and the other light it is perfect.

    this fan is COOL!

    I've wanted a nose prop ceiling fan since I was a kid. Recently, during some home renovations, I'd been looking at ceiling fans at the big chains, and after finding some suitable for every other room in the house, I just couldn't pull the trigger on one for my office.
    Then I saw this one on facebook, and I just had to have it. I got it quickly, within a couple of days, and it looked even better in person than it did in the pictures online.
    Installation was really easy, much easier than the other five I'd already put up....it was quite literally, a "breeze" to install.
    Best of all, EVERY single one of my friends think it's the coolest ceiling fan ever. When people come over, they ask to see the ceiling fan in my office first thing.
    Thanks, Tailwinds, for helping me check one off of my bucket list.
    easy install quick delivery absolutely delightful pay attention to where the cover screws onto the base. not a con, just an fyi

    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.
    Quality materials, quiet, easy to install, attractive. Only positives from this reviewer.

    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.
    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 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.
    Easy install, looks great, runs quiet I wished the nose light was led instead of a 40w bulb, not much light.
