Just wanted to give a huge shoutout to Aviator Gear for bringing my grandfather's KC-135 back to life. This is such an amazing company from the customer service all the way to their extraordinary care and meticulous attention to detail! Our family is thrilled! Thank you again for your hard work for our military veteran heroes!

Me, reacting to my Father's Day gift….. A meticulously accurate wooden model of the Piper PA-32-300 Cherokee Six N8934N that I drove around the Hawaiian skies for over 200 hours between 1975 and 1980. Treasured memories!

~ Harley H.


I am very happy with all of the aspects of my purchase. The Briefing Stick turned out great! Although it took several months to receive the aircraft, I really liked all the steps for quality control. I had opportunities to provide pictures and see the version along the way. The final product looks just like the real aircraft. Well done!

Great company. I've had multiple custom plaques made and they are all exactly as I requested. Their attention to detail and your specific requests results in an outstanding finished product. Definitely recommend & customer for life!

We worked with Carlo Luciano to order new Tail Flash awards for the squadron. Carlo and his team did an excellent job from start to finish for the awards. I am confident when these are presented for annual awards personnel will be very happy. Highly recommend! Thank you from all of us at the 56th Contracting Squadron.

One work to start-Amazing! When I ordered My briefing stick I really had no idea of the level of service and accuracy I was going to get. They matched my custom Cirrus colors perfectly and got every detail right even down to my logo on the tail. I already ordered a desk model as well.
