Fathers Day is upon us, and you are part of us…so it’s high time you start picking out a gift. Your dad did his part to bring you into this world, so my advice is to not insult him with a stupid tie. The gift of life does not equal the gift of polka dot, it doesn’t equal the gift of aviation gear either…but at least daddy-o will enjoy it.
Whether you’re a child shopping for a dad, a dad shopping for a son-dad, or a grandson shopping for a granddad, we’ve compiled some of the best gifts we can think of to make aviation dads cheer.
Depending on what you order and what shipping method you choose, dad-man-do could get his gift a couple days late, but better late than bad-gift-disownment right. Plus, if you’ve ever thought you were done opening presents only to spy that last package tucked away under all the wrapping paper…you know the rush that can provide (think Red Rider BB Gun in A Christmas Story).
David Clark Model 27 Hearing Protection: Dad’s going to lose his hearing eventually, why not save him a couple years.
CUBDRIVER Alaska DVD: He’ll fully enjoy it, 60 Minutes can take a night off.
Vertex VXA-220 Air Band Transceiver: Great for aviation, great for letting you know if he fell in the bathroom.
F&M Enterprises Model 5639 Oil Filter Torque Wrench: Perfect for working on Oil Filters, satisfactory for chasing away “loitering whipper-snappers.”
AO Eyewear Original Pilot Sunglasses: Because dad may have literally been the “original pilot”, and because the sun never sets on cool.
SkyGeek Gift Certificates: They keys to the candy shop…
That’s it for this week everyone. Have a happy Fathers Day, and take care!
