2023 Aviators Gift Guide

 We have a some recommendations for you to order a few last minute Christmas gifts for the aviation enthusiast in your life. There might just be a few items here you order for yourself!

Red Canoe offers up legacy brand merchandise and we have several of their shirts and hats in our closet. Show off your favorite Boeing, Lockheed, NASA, deHavilland logo adorned adventure gear.

The art of flight jumps off the pages of the Champions of Flight book. This one came to our collection last year and it is one of our stand out books in our archives. Two artists are featured and the story behind the art will have your nose in this book for hours.

The office walls will be the talk of your parties when you add BVR Design posters to your decor. We collaborated with BVR Design to produce some aviation posters unlike you would see at the box stores. Pick one or two our for your hangar man cave.

Sit down with this self published work from our archives to be taken back to the hay day of Warbird Airshows in Breckenridge, Texas. Over 170 color photos and available in several formats.

Aviation inspired time pieces. AVI-8 is REALLY designing some amazing watches. My collection of AVI-8 watches is going and I will surely add more in the future.

Cockpit USA has been the high end leather jacket go to shop for many years. They also produce textile jackets at a lower price point that will fill your need for speed.

Adam Makos is one of our favorite story tellers in recent years with his biographies. A Higher Call and Devotion are highly recommended from our library.

Own a piece of aviation history with these key tags made from historic aircraft like the Spitfire, Eagle, Hercules and so many more.

For the aviation book worm Schiffer Military books produces some of the highest quality books being produced today. Take some time to cruise their catalog of aerospace books.

EAA Video of Monocoupe 110 Special

Monocoupes really are a special breed of airplane. The Clipwing was the "hot rod" of the skies back in the 1930s. Today they are a rare aeronautical treasure. I have been fortunate to fly with Kelly Mahon in Clipwing N2347. This EAA video tells the story well! Hats off to Kelly for sharing this airplane and to Connor Madison for the awesome photos.

Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum Opening


April of 2023 will see the opening of the Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum in Atchison, Kansas. At the center of the museum is a surviving example of a Lockheed 10E, the same model as Earhart's. 149 Lockheed 10s were built and only about 13 airframes survive around the world. The story of Amelia, her aviation exploits and mysterious 1937 round the world flight will be told at this new museum. It will be worth the visit.
