A house right next to the airport

This probably hits home to many of you folks out there whose airport has been more or less successfully threatened by anti airport activists.

I totally understand that noise pollution can be nerve-wracking and wouldn’t want to live in the approach path of a major airport either. But in most cases, the airport was there before the residential area. The situation might be different in Europe than in the United States or Australia, for instance. But even here, the airfields were usually built well outside of town, with the town slowly creeping up to it.

In my own little hometown, there was an “episode” of anti airport activists who tried to shut down our small local airfield. Fortunately, the aviation community could lobby against that successfully. I think there are a few noise abatement rules in place now. A win-win, if you ask me. In many cases, especially in urban areas, the bigger threat are probably land developers who have their eyes on big and undeveloped pieces of real estate.

Anyway, we’re totally biased and emphatically on the aviation side of this debate, of course! If you want to use any of our comic strips for any form of anti-anti-airport-activism, please feel free to just take them. We even have a special page with some high res versions.

Fellow chickens in the coop rejoice!

Come this November the chickens at Roost Air will be celebrating 20 years in business!

To celebrate this special occasion, we have planned a few events and gimmicks for this year. Starting with … two awesome patches! Behold:

Chicken Wings 20th Anniversary PVC Patches

Europeans can get them here: Chicken Wings Shop

Americans can get them here: AVIATORwebsite (also best for orders from the rest of the world).

They will be a limited edition patch since they make less sense come next year.

These patches are only the beginning. For our 10 year anniversary we turned a “Silver Eagle” into a “Silver Chicken”. This time we thought we’d carry on with the tradition of turning “all things eagle” into chickens and convert the classic “Eagle Driver” patch many Air Forces are using into a “Chicken Driver” patch.

Who knew chickens get this old? Not in our wildest dreams would we have thought way back when in 2001 that we’d still be doing this today. Typically, wine fueled ideas around midnight don’t end up being a 20 year long passion and commitment, unless of course, you end up pregnant, LOL. We thought we would be out of ideas at some point. At some point very soon actually, since at the time we only came up with roughly 12 strips. But thanks to you all and the very unique field of aviation, Roost Air is still soldiering on.

Thanks to our Patrons
