If you have a bunch of PVC jacket cables strung around the pilot’s seat, you might be able to tidy things up by spiral coiling them. Here are two cables I wrapped around i) a pencil and ii) a marking pen, secured the ends with some tape, then heated with a hot air gun for a couple of minutes. (Don’t let them melt.)
Leave plenty of time to cool, then untape. Presto-hey, stretchy coils:

Stay well, everyone

Cool! . . . or should I say 'toasty'?

I'm fairly certain that manufactured
coil-cords go through a similar process.
If you look at the inside surfaces
of the coils, you see a 'flat' suggesting
that at some time, the outer jacket of
the cord was wrapped around a warm
cylinder that shaped the jacket.
