Fellow chicken aviators!
Many news coming up this spring during our “Spring Chicken Campaign”!
As we are regrouping after the AERO show cancellation, we decided we will still release our new book “Moments in Aviation History” online. It will be available very soon pending a few logistics hurdles we still need to overcome. But we are still expecting the launch at the same time the show would have happened. Behold a preview of what it looks like in all its glory!
It’s our first hardcover books as well as our first cooperation with a fellow author, namely Jim Cunningham (who some of you may know from our Facebook group) and we are very happy with the result!
By that we mean all the lovely people who support us through our Patreon page. We thank you all for your continued awesomeness! Those of you signed up at “Hangar del Chuck” Level and higher will receive the new book free of charge. We will write you an email shortly unless we already have your address.
Those of you at “Pilot Bar” Level or higher will receive a new t-shirt we made, free of charge. Same deal, we will write you for your size and address unless you already you already gave it to us. In that case expect a package soon.
Also, the “Roost Air” ball cap received a make-over with a slightly “Top-Gunnier” font to celebrate the release of Top Gun 2 and a little something we’re working on in Patreon and the YouTube Chanel. More to follow on that one.
But as Patreon you can get the hat instead of the t-shirt if you wish. Just let us know.
If you are not a Patron of Chicken Wings yet, it is never too late to sign up, support us, and receive new prices during our “Spring Chicken Campaign”.
Due to Mike living in the States and Stef living in Austria, we are running two completely separate online shops, for logistical as well as accounting reasons. Everybody in the US and the Rest of North America is best served at the AVIATORwebsite Online Shop, which is run by Mike.
But here are some news for all the Non-Americans: Just now, we have moved our European Shop from our previous third-party system on to this very website right here. Check it out!
We will place a few more redirections and notifications for Americans that should lead them to AVIATORwebsite. For everybody else: The new European shop is a work in progress, and there are still a few design issues. We’d be happy for any feedback you can give us, preferably directly to Stef (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As a great opportunity, to repay you for using you as Beta-Testers, we timed this with out annual …
Black(Bird) Friday Sale!
Get a 25% Discount across the board, on all orders in both our shops by using the Coupon Code “BF2019”. Valid until Friday, December 6.

It is done! After some feedback from our Patrons and people at last week’s AERO, we made a few little tweaks and finally uploaded the final product on Youtube for all the world to see!
Many people said that the radio transmissions were too hard to understand, especially for non-native speakers. So we reduced the distortion effect and added subtitles.
We hope you like it and are looking forward to your feedback! This is just the beginning of many animated adventures to come! You can help us by:
- Liking the video on Youtube
- Sharing it with your friends
- Subscribing to our Youtube channel
And last but not least:
We’re grateful for any and all support you can give us! Word of mouth is powerful and every little bit helps!
We’re already working on the next film, but it will take a little while, because, as we already mentioned a hundred times, these things are an enormous amount of work. But as were climbing up the learning curve and with your growing support, we’re optimistic to gradually increase our output over time!
Enjoy the show and stay tuned for more!
Yes, we have threatened you with this before. But this time we mean it. We are getting closer and closer to making Chuck walk, talk, and most importantly, FLY! As we are moving forward with the animation project, we will also make some changes to the website.
Today we have added a funding section hosted by “Patreon” to our site in case you are wondering what the new buttons underneath the weekly comic mean. Within you will find exciting new content and will be able to keep up with our progress in regards to our ambitious animation projects. You will also have the option of supporting us by making small (or big) monthly donations. In order to talk you into supporting us we will have lots of goodies and extras for you in the next coming months.
This is strictly on a volunteer basis and you can cancel at any time. Also, what is really important for us to mention is that none of the free content on our website will change. If you like to keep browsing the site and our comics as usual you will always be able to do so and we will not hold it against you. We value all of you joining us here in the coop!
Why are we going the Patreon route?
We have two main reasons. We are serious about making videos and it is a lot of work. We want to keep our animated shorts and the website free from advertising. We really hate ads, especially in the middle of a short video. And as you might have noticed, we got rid of a bunch of ads on the new website as well. The second reason is that the more we can fund Stefan, the easier it will be for us to yank him away from other day job projects which in turn will get us more animation and faster. To accomplish this, we seek your support. We think together we can make this thing grow and have you, our fans, help not only get this thing off the ground (yes, pun intended) but help us steer it into the direction we all want to see this go.

AND HEY! To kick this off properly “Chicken Wings Style”, the first 20 coop animation supporters will receive a free “Roost Air” t-shirt when they sign up, no matter which tier you decide on!
Here’s a sneak peek from the storyboard of our first animation.
