How A Filipino Entrepreneur’s Passion For Aircraft Took Off
Since investing in e-commerce and a reliable logistics partner, Philippines-based model maker Aircraft City is soaring onto the global stage with customers across the world.
Founder Lyndon Uson is a Filipino craftsman and entrepreneur whose innate passion for airplanes led him to start handcrafting high-quality military and civilian aircraft models. With support from his family and industry peers, he opened his own company, Aircraft City, which has now grown and expanded operations to attract customers from all around the world.
"We are very particular about details. Since our models are handmade, characteristics such as the size of the propeller and the internal cockpit are taken into design consideration. My forte is developing models that my competitors aren’t making or aren’t able to develop,” shared Lyndon.
As his work became internationally recognized, Lyndon formed a partnership with Aviator Gear, a US-based e-commerce platform for custom military aviation gear. This partnership brought in resources that enabled Aircraft City to export their creations and connect with global customers. With a wider network, Lyndon is able to focus on design, production, and shipment of orders to customers from the US, Europe and other parts of the world.
“It is crucial to us that our logistics provider understands that our products are delicate. With FedEx, they offer different shipping tools and solutions that enable us to optimize costs and delivery efficiency. And that is why we have shipped with them since 2013,” Lyndon says.
