They Turned an Old Airplane into a 650 Sq. Ft. Home


An airplane as a vacation home? It’s not exactly tiny (650 square feet) and wasn’t inexpensive ($600K+), but it’s really neat! Jon and Stephanie own and operate a flight school in Alaska, and started building tiny homes to house their students.

During construction, Jon got the wild idea that an aircraft-turned-home would be a less expensive option. It wasn’t — the cost of transporting retired aircraft to Alaska is steep — but they carried on with the idea anyway, deciding on making it an Airbnb. You’ll love this unique vacation spot, complete with two bedrooms, a luxury bathroom, and a cool off-wing deck!

    What a cool concept and design! I hope this incredibly unique and quirky couple does super in their business adventure.
    I love the sleek modern design juxtaposed in the old aircraft. Their love of history and flight is obvious and I applaud them!
