Here is another pedal. Not as stylish as the other ones, but this one is from a Lockheed PV-1 Ventura.

I especially like the Fairchild ones. A work of art in my book.

I do not have any rudder pedals in my collection. I have assumed that they were collectible since I have seen them for sale in aviation collectibles related catalogs in the past 25-30 years. I agree that they have a style to them in the manufacturer's names and construction.
In my opinion, they would make great bookends!

The 880 was intended to be an airliner but was not very successful against competitors Boeing and Douglas. The U.S. Navy used the 880 as a test bed for the F-14 program.
There were only 65 of these jets built and less than 6 remain. None of the six is airworthy. The most famous 880 was owned by Elvis Presley and is one of the last complete 880's left in the world.

Based on production numbers, this is almost certain to be from a helicopter rather than an airplane but for me, it represents the Sikorsky flying boats of aviation's Golden Age.

That is sweet!! Thanks for posting.
Nice paint job on your Sikorsky pedal. Did you do it yourself?
Have you done any research to see exactly what aircraft your pedal is from?
