Install an Airplane Ceiling Fan: Part 1

Summary: This Airplane Ceiling Fan installation was one of the most unusual ceiling fans I have ever had the pleasure of installed.

How to Install an Airplane Ceiling Fan - Part #1

Airplane Ceiling Fan
I have installed countless ceiling fans, and this airplane ceiling fan had to be among one of the most interesting to assemble and put together.


You may be attracted to this fantastic ceiling fan creation, so you will be interested to know how the installation process proceeded. First of all, it will be a relief to know that this airplane ceiling fan just required to standard wiring and an approved electrical box which was installed onto a wood ceiling joist in this room. The mounting went pretty smooth once I understood how to attach a set of support wires for the large housing for the engine. Once that was clear then the installation went pretty smooth.
The homeowner was completely thrilled with this addition to his recreation room which will get allot of complements from all of his guests.
