Aircraft with Aft Air Stair Access and Basic Interior
offering a B727-200 aircraft for reuse as a home. It is our
intention to deliver and set the airplane up on a column and bearing
arrangement so it weathervanes. We have tried to define what we
consider a “basic” airplane home. This project has all the
complexities of a normal home and we will try to deliver and install
it to the buyers needs, within the following limitations.
$2000 deposit is required to hold an Airplane Home in your name.
Our team will dispatch an Architect and/or General Contractor to
your land to survey, inspect and permit the site for installation.
Let our experts find out if this project can be done. If for
any reason we are unable to put an Airplane Home on your property we
will cheerfully refund your entire deposit. If you
decide for any reason that you do not want to build the Airplane
Home, you will forfeit the deposit.
727-200 Aircraft Fuselage Includes:
everything to make the outside look finished including radome,
cockpit windows replaced with Lexan, all cabin external doors, all
cabin windows, both wings removed and reinstalled at the wing root,
includes the center engine inlet. Both upper and lower rudders and
tabs are included to give the vertical stabilizer a complete
appearance. Rudders are secured so they will not move. Landing
gear doors are included and are in the up and closed position to
give a streamlined external appearance. If your home is
erected at 4 ft above the ground you will use the air stair doors to
enter the home. If you want your home erected at elevations
5-20 ft we will construct wing stairs for your entrance. Wing
rails will be an available free option.
