The National Trust at Styal has asked volunteers to provide info on interesting pastimes they take part in. My proposal of PPL flying has been enthusiastically accepted by NT. They have pictures.. but they want some 'things' to display as well (I'm assured they'll be secure). I'm thinking a headset, a chart... maybe an empty wallet.
What ideas do you have?

A headset is a good one. Non-flyers are always a bit intrigued by them and want to try them on. It would be nice to find a way to have some recorded GA ATC dialogue playing through an MP3 player when they do put them on.
How about a handheld radio tuned into MCR tower? I find people are always fascinated by RT. If it just needs to be something on display without making a noise, then a chart with a route on it which leaves the country looks good too.
