Attention all aviation geeks! If you or your plane-obsessed loved one is looking for a unique, fun gift to get you through quarantine, or better yet, to have when this pandemic is over to use as a bar to host parties (talk about a conversation starter), then check out for factory new, beverage carts (sometimes called service carts, meal carts, airline or galley trolleys).

Fun fact: These carts were first seen on airlines in the late sixties with the introduction of jumbo jets. With the larger number of passengers, it was no longer practical to hand deliver meals.

These are the same carts that the airlines use for food and beverage service aboard full-service airlines around the world. They’re designed and built to meet the challenging requirements in the airline industry.. So they have to be light, but also safe and very, very durable. Specifications are as follows: Height 41″, Width 12″, Length 16″, Empty Weight 29.5 lbs.

The best part about these SkyCarts is that they aren’t boring like the all-silver ones the airlines usually order. Instead, they have dozens of fun designs to choose from or you can have them create your own customized design.. The 25 designs range from Alpine White to Walnut. But there are also exciting ones like a throwback to Pan Am or popular cities like New York.

As one might expect, they’re not cheap, with prices starting at $1,498 for brand new ones. I know, it’s crazy expensive but you can buy a used one or a new one with a minor dent for about $500 less. The good news is that shipping within the 48 contiguous states is free and worldwide shipping is also available.

MySkyCart also sells accessories such as:

-Plastic Drawer $19.00
-Aluminum Drawer $49.00
-Aluminum Wine Shelf $45.00
-Aluminum Shelf $39.00
-Acrylic Drawer $89.00
-Butcher-Block $89.00
-Plastic Food Tray (Set of 5) $29.00
-Acrylic Shelf $45.00
-LED-Shelf $299.00

MySkyCart is based in the Spruce Creek Fly-in community near Daytona Beach, Florida.

Full disclosure: sent me one for free and since we aren’t entertaining guests due to the pandemic, I use it as a set prop for my TV and YouTube interviews, which you can subscribe to here.
