    Aerosente is no longer for sale. As many of you know, we entertained a few offers to sell Aerosente over the summer. While we had some interesting conversations we decided to take the business off the market and keep it for the long term. The reason we considered selling was the growth that Aerosente had experienced and our ability to keep up with it . I also run another business that is growing and quite demanding and at one point this summer was working 18 hours a day keeping the wheels on the road. Yikes!

    So after more analysis and soul-searching we made a family decision here and decided to keep the business in the family. We’ll be moving to an even larger shop and buying some additional equipment that will streamline our production. Also, I’m delighted to say that my lovely wife and partner of 41 years (we met when we were 16) will be handling the day-to-day office work including shipping. Which takes an enormous burden off of my shoulders. She’s a flight attendant for American Airlines which makes her perfectly suited to help run an “international aircraft manufacturing enterprise”. Ha!

    I have some fresh stuff from Tony Elliott coming along with new pricing and kit options for Tom Bode's kits from Germany. We also are nearing completion on the 1:6 scale version of the LT-IV which should go on sale the end of November.

    Our newsletter is going out for October in the next few days - it has a vintage theme - we go behind the scenes and talk with vintage pin-up photographer Mike Malak and feature a fascinating interview about Frank Zaic. So if you're not on the list you can subscribe at wwww.aerosente.com.

    Thanks for your support guys!
