If you do a quick google search these days for “Unique Gifts for Helicopter Pilots”, you’ll find slim pickings. It’s not that there isn’t any out there it’s just that they’re hard to find. Sure, you could go on Amazon and find some products for sale that work just fine as a gift for the helicopter pilot in your life but if you want something different you need to look no further.

Squadron Posters

Art representing not just aircraft, armored cavalry, and ships, but also adventure and travel. Making awesome travel posters is a lot of what they do but my favorite by far is the “Jet Black Aircraft Series”.

Check out this CH-53E Super Stallion, as the largest and heaviest helicopter in the United States military. It was developed from the CH-53 Sea Stallion, mainly by adding a third engine, adding a seventh blade to the main rotor and canting the tail rotor 20 degrees. It was built by Sikorsky Aircraft for the US Marine’s.
