To celebrate its first birthday Aileron is offering an exclusive discount throughout June and a new limited edition leather, Borealis Blue.
June 14th, 2018 will mark Aileron first birthday and the luxury aviation retailer will be celebrating the occasion in style at the UK’s Festival of Aviation - AeroExpo 14-16 June Wycombe Air Park. Be sure to visit the Aileron team and join the celebrations.
A desire to do something better
This time last year Aileron launched a product they are hugely passionate about. Driven by a desire to do something better, they were committed to creating a product that wasn’t just of a superior quality, but suited for (and injected a touch of style into) modern pilot life. The retailer’s flagship product - the Personalised Pilot Log Book was launched in June 2017.
“Aileron was founded in 2016 and we dedicated a whole year to developing our flagship product before we launched the business. The development time allowed us to passionately perfect the Aileron Pilot Log Book and lay the foundations of a modern aviation brand, I’m immensely proud of what we have achieved in such a short space of time”
Laura Burke - Aileron Brand Director.
In just 365 days following the launch Aileron has delivered Log Books for trainee and professional pilots in 12 countries worldwide, and counting.
21st Century Loggers
Just four months after launching, Aileron soon teamed up with mccPILOTLOG, allowing pilots digitally record their flight hours to create a physical and personalised Aileron Log Book - the first printing service for digital flight logging with a tailor made design.
“We’re in the business of products that you can hold, feel, treasure and show off! There is an important place world for a physical Log Book and appreciation of the paper past, we know because pilots tell us. But we’re also focused on combining this with the best user experience and a modern approach to logging. mccPILOTLOG is one of the most established and reliable digital logging solutions on the market and so we are really pleased to be able to able to partner with them to offer pilots the best of both worlds.”
Nathan Powrie - Aileron Commercial Director
In its first year, Aileron launched three products, Log Book Binding, Digital Log Book Printing and, of course, the original Aileron Personalised Pilot Log Book.
Beyond the book
Community is a huge part of the Aileron mission and in the past year the company has worked closely with aviation charity organisations, launched free training support and built a bank of topical discussion for aviation professionals and those looking to become part of the industry, through its weekly blog.
In November, Aileron officially pledged its support to flying charity Aerobility, supporting their mission to offer disabled people, without exception, the opportunity to fly an aeroplane. Aileron personalised Professional Pilot Log Books are available to order through the Aerobility shop at the charity’s Blackbushe Airport headquarters and for all Log Books ordered through the shop, 10% from the cost of the book is donated directly to Aerobility.
“Aerobility is a fantastic charity, they do incredible work within our aviation community and Aileron is delighted to be supporting them and this brilliant cause. We look forward to supporting Aerobility into the future, and to encourage as many enthusiastic aviators as possible to get involved.”
Dean Corbin - Aileron Operations Director
This summer, Aileron even launched it’s very own internship programme, inviting those looking for international business experience to act as CEO for three months!
But we’re just at the tip of the iceberg...
