The Best 2020 Aviation Christmas Gifts for Pilots

2.7k views

It’s almost that time of the year again: Jingle Bells playing around every corner. If finding Christmas presents is hard, try finding (an affordable) one for a pilot!

First of all, we want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

Despite the current circumstances.. Because it has been one hell of a year. One of which the end is, unfortunately, not yet in sight.

Perhaps you have flown less this year than you expected (especially if you fly for a living). Or perhaps you have flown more, because, well.. what else is there to do? For me personally, flying has given me a way to escape all that is currently going on in the world. A way to release my mind, some sort of meditation you could say.

And despite everything going on right now, we have to keep looking ahead, to better times, but also just try to make the most out of every day right now.

Because well, Christmas and the warmest time of the year hasn’t been cancelled!

And if you’re like me, you love receiving Christmas presents, but you love giving them even more. But one question returns each year: what should you give?

Well, we listed a few great aviation holidays presents options to give to those special aviation lovers in your life.
