Airplane Weathervane – Quest Air Venture

Quest Air Weather Vane


This Quest Air, Airplane Weathervane was our very first airplane design. You will note that this particular plane does not show the windows as cut outs, which more typical of our later airplane weather vane designs. If you have a Quest Air airplane and are interested in having a weather vane made based on this vane, we would be happy to work with you to update the technical details.

As seen here the airplane body was fabricated in copper and the propeller in brass. Also, we now include the N number on most of our air craft weather vanes in either gold or palladium leaf. If you want we can add optional gold or palladium leafing on the propeller or to details that will mimic the detailing on your airplane. A security device is included in all of our ‘spread wing’ weathervanes to prevent them taking flight in high winds, be they bird, book or bi-plane

Planes are popular here at West Coast Weather Vanes. The have been ordered for homes, businesses, and small airports. Many pilots are devoted to the vintage plane they love the best and are happy to have one ‘flying’ over their garage, cupola, or garden. To see all of our airplane designs use this link. If you don’t see exactly what you want, or see something close that we can personalize for you, give us a call. Custom weather vanes are our specialty.

A fixed wing aircraft is an aircraft capable of flight using wings that generate lift due to the vehicle’s forward airspeed and the shape of the wings. Fixed-wing aircraft are distinct from rotary-wing aircraft in which the wings form a rotor mounted on a spinning shaft and ornithopters in which the wings flap in similar manner to a bird. The wings of a fixed-wing aircraft are not necessarily rigid; kites, hang-gliders and aeroplanes using wing-warping or variable geometry are all regarded as fixed-wing aircraft. A powered fixed-wing aircraft that gains forward thrust from an engine is typically called an aero plane, airplane, or simply a plane.
