Isn’t air travel cool? Being on an airplane is perhaps the closest we’ll ever feel to the birds in the sky. Even though the flight methods are different, it’s always fascinating to look out an airplane window and see the world from a completely different view. As bad luck would have it, you probably haven’t seen the inside of many airplanes recently — travel options remain limited due to the COVID-19 health crisis. But that’s a good thing, in comparison to the health and safety of our loved ones. In the meantime, you can always utilize airplane coloring pages to get your wanderlust fix.

Airplane printables are the perfect way to stay occupied while you’re on the phone with a travel agent (or your best friend) to plan that trip for 2022. Here are 10 amazing airplane coloring pages for you or your kids that’ll remind you both of incredible past vacations, as well as the fun times that are ahead.

This plane is a lot of fun since it’s already drawn to be in motion. That means that if you get creative with your shading, your airplane can almost look like it’s animated. The sky also offers a lot of good options. Is it a sunny morning? Is a storm brewing? That’s up to you to decide. And what kind of airplane is it? If it’s a Boeing, it took about six million pieces to build it. That’s a lot of parts!

This plane looks like it’s going places! Maybe to a dreamy beach locale? Help it get there in style with sleek shades of gray, or perhaps this might be the best time to break out those rarely used beige and off-white pencils for a realistic look. Speaking of colors, did you know that flight data recorders, which are commonly known as black boxes, aren’t black. They’re actually bright orange.

Is there anything more exciting than a child’s first plane ride? But also, is there anything more terrifying for parents than a child’s first plane ride? Aside from being so far up in the air, it’s tough to know how your child will respond to such a different setting. Ease their mind with this coloring page and a few encouraging words before your flight. Also, want to know the ickiest place on the plane? One hint — it’s not the bathroom. It’s actually the food tray. There are 2,155 bacterial units per square inch. That is both fascinating and incredibly gross.

4. Small Plane

Planes come in all shapes and sizes. But it’s fair to say that passengers always get a bit scared when asked to board a tiny plane instead of a big one they expected. Fear not, and remind yourself that it takes pilots over two years to gain the 1,500 hours of flight time required before flying commercially. That’s a lot of practice.

5. Propeller Plane

Propeller planes are especially fun to color. Out of all the airplane coloring pages so far, this is the first to include a tiny pilot.

6. Girl and Toy Plane

Is this a little girl whose mom happens to be a pilot? Or maybe she’s a little girl who dreams of being a pilot someday. This coloring page boasts tons of tiny details to color in, like the buttons on her blouse and stickers on her suitcase.

If you could buy plane tickets right now, where would you want to go? You can personalize this coloring page and use it for your motivation board. Maybe it’ll also serve as a good reminder to save money.

Use your pinks, yellows, grays, and blues to create a gorgeous sunrise on this page. Or you could get adventurous coloring in the sun — a bold choice would be bright neon colors. That would really make the page shine!

Safe in the air and seatbelt-free, it seems like this young pair can’t get enough of the view from above. For added fun, draw in something fun that the window seat passenger is pointing at out the window. We’d personally love to see Harry Potter flying by on his Firebolt broomstick!

10. Plane Flying Over the Mountains

It may seem like the plane is flying a little too close to the mountains, but consider coloring it in a way that adds more depth. Try to make the mountain range look far away while keeping the plane front and center. Wherever the plane is going, we hope the passengers brought warm clothes — those snow-capped peaks look chilly.
