I wonder if there ever was one distinct guy in the history of mankind, who was the first to come up with the concept of following the rules by their letter and not in the spirit of their intended purpose. If so, that person probably was the first lawyer. In any case, we would have to thank him for indirectly being responsible for all our laws being about twenty times as extensive as we’d really need!
Woohoo! We’re having a drawing contest! To enter, all you have to do is draw your favorite Chicken Wings character or aircraft (anything Chicken Wings related, really) and post it as a image in a comment HERE on our Facebook page! Everybody can vote by liking the submissions. And to make it a bit exciting, we’re giving away some prizes. Here’s what you can win:
1st Prize: The picture with the most likes will win you a $100 gift voucher for one of our online shops.
2nd Prize: The second best entry will receive a custom, Chicken Wings style profile picture hand-drawn by Stef.
Raffle Prize: Among all entrants, we will raffle off a $50 gift voucher. So you don’t have to be a Leonardo da Vinci to win! (Although it may help you, of course).
You can submit and vote until Tuesday, March 3rd!
Good luck everyone!!

Also, we recently created our very own Youtube Channel! Check it out HERE! We’ve uploaded four videos so far. Two of those videos are short tutorials on how to draw Chuck and Julio, perfectly timed for the drawing contest! Also, you can watch Mike autorotate with a Huey and a watch the Chicken Wings Cessna taxi in Henderson, Las Vegas.
We haven’t yet gotten around to creating our own animated show (a project we’ve been dreaming about for years), but if we ever do, now at least we have our Youtube channel ready!
As some of you might know, our chickens went digital in the form of Kindle back in 2012 when this book came out. It was quite a learning process for us in this new scary digital world. We spent a lot of research and bought many other Kindle comics to see what guys were doing and what we didn’t like in order to make this book a better experience for our readers.
At the time, color readers had just come out and we didn’t have the variety we have now. There also weren’t a whole lot of Kindle comics out back and a lot of them seemed clunky and hard to use which we are sure has changed by now. Some were just scanned images with no function and options. Hopefully we did a better job than that.
We were curious to see if any of you tuning in on regular basis have the Kindle Version and what you thought of it. Maybe even share a little review with us on Amazon?
Please let us know. If we see a lot of interest, we might come out with more apps and Kindle stuff in the near future.
Due to popular demand and because we think we kinda sprung this on you without much notice yesterday we have decided to extend our 20% discount for a few days.
We also think Chuck’s term of “Cyborg Monday” was really funny and had a blast making the last comic strip. So let’s extend the offer until “Cyborg Monday” is over with the hopes Chuck will survive this horrible day in history!
Keep using the discount code “CHUCKBF2014” until the end of Monday and keep in mind that this code will discount products already discounted even more! Mind blown! We know, right?! ….
Hey there, fellow Aviators and Aviation fans!
Going with the times, the chickens will take Thanksgiving off (except Stefan, since he lives in “the old world”, and Hans since he still hasn’t caught on) and have a Black Friday deal for you! Chuck is slashing the prices on all Roost-Air gear, gifts and books! Get your Christmas Shopping done early!
On Friday, use promo code “CHUCKBF2014″ during checkout! It’s easy to remember, think “Chuck is my Best Friend” or “Chuck Black Friday”!
And in other news:
The ones among you who keep track of us on our Website, Facebook and Twitter may have seen a few similarities between Chicken Wings and “AviatorWebsite.com” lately. We have been working for AviatorWebsite for many years already (well, mostly Stefan) in form of designing all kinds of Greeting Cards and parts of the website.
After initially teaming up, Roost-Air ended up taking control of AviatorWebsite entirely (see? This happens everywhere in aviation, not just the airline industry). With this we were able to re-launch Stefan’s designs of fun Aviation Christmas Cards which we are very excited about. We’re especially excited about the “Santa’s Adventures” Series which we think is extremely funny.
Our plan is to eventually merge the two websites and have AviatorWebsite run the shipping and handling for the Chicken Wings Online shop in the States. But this will still take a little while since Chicken Wings currently ships worldwide and AviatorWebsite only domestic US and Canada.
But eventually the goal will be to offer you an even wider variety of fun aviation gifts, books, t-shirts, and other fun flying related stuff on a better, easier to navigate, secure online shop platform.
So come check out both websites this Winter and stay tuned for more news on the merger. AviatorWebsite will also be running a 20% off deal on Black Friday for those of you who live in the US or Canada!
