Shipping within the USA

If you live in the USA, we love USPS Priority Mail. Why not get your package in 2 days at a reasonable price? UPS Ground can take as many as 5 business days. In the USA, USPS Priority Mail is trackable and provides overall great service. We recommend choosing Priority Mail as your package will get to you faster almost every time over UPS. However UPS is a great option on bigger items like our custom builds because USPS can’t handle the size or weight.

We are based in Lynchburg, Virginia & happy to do local pick ups or if you close by on the east coast then USPS First Class can be a good & economical option as delivery times should be within 1-3 days.

Shipping to countries outside the USA

Shipping packages to outside the USA can get expensive and various shipping options can take a long time. If you choose USPS First Class be prepared to wait 7-14 days if not longer for your order to arrive. These packages are often held up in outgoing customs as well as in incoming customs once the package arrives in your destination country. All of the USPS shipping methods are generally challenged by the fact that the package is handed from USPS to the local postal service of your destination country. This "hand-off" often creates delays and issues with solid tracking information. USPS First Class does not provide any tracking for shipments to countries outside of the US. Even USPS methods for packages leaving the US that should provide tracking details (like Priority Mail and Express) often show only sporadic tracking details.

 

We strongly advise against using USPS First Class for international orders as it is slow & can be unreliable. If you care about your package and the cost goes above $40 USD, we would always advise you pick a more reliable shipping method such as USPS Priority Mail or UPS.

 

We also don't like USPS Express for international shipments. USPS Express is supposed to provide you 3-6 day turn around at a premium price, but we've seen packages delayed by weeks using this method as packages get handed from USPS to the local postal service. If you are thinking of using USPS Express, we urge you to consider UPS or DHL Express instead. Your package will stay in the possession of UPS or DHL throughout its journey and you will have complete trackability throughout. UPS Worldwide Saver OR DHL Express is our fastest shipping method for International orders which provides 2 day delivery to almost any country in the world at only a slight premium over USPS Express.

 

We pack with care to make sure your gear arrives in the best condition possible. We care about our pilots because we are pilots.

How long until my order ships?

We do our best to get orders that are placed before noon (EST) shipped out within one (1) business day.

We cannot always guarantee a 1-day turnaround, but we do our best to get your gear heading your way with little delay.

Where is my Gear?

We know you want your gear and here is how you check to see has it shipped.

  1. Log in to your SBA account 
  2. Look at your order history. 
  3. Each order will show if it was shipped & we normally provide a tracking link, if available, given your selected shipping methods. You will also generally get an email as items move from packing to being shipped out.
