It was not long ago that a friend
and I decided to take that trip that so many pilots talk about. A trip
that so many of us have already taken and a trip that, hopefully, many
more of us will take in the future.
That trip was in a small airplane, a 1958 Cessna 172, and the
route of flight took us through the central and northwestern United
States, western Canada and into the rugged and beautiful state of
Alaska. It was a flight that began in Houston, Texas and ended, 35
flight hours later, in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Over the months leading up to the flight, we spent an enormous amount of
time attempting to locate and purchase that survival gear
which was either required by law or I had deemed necessary to keep us safe in the event of an unfortunate incident. The task was daunting.
After shopping multiple locations and paying numerous shipping
fees, we still did not find everything we needed. It is because of our difficulty in locating quality aviation survival equipment
that I decided, upon my return, to start Best Glide Aviation Survival
It is our mission at Best Glide Aviation Survival Equipment, Inc.
to provide the survival equipment community with a comprehensive selection of
quality aviation and wilderness survival related equipment at a reasonable price and
in a convenient and timely manner. We are rapidly and enthusiastically working toward this goal.
We at Best Glide ASE will sell only the best quality
Aviation, Wilderness and Personal Survival products. If it is not quality, you will not find it
here. If we are not willing to trust our lives to a specific product,
you will not find it here either. Subsequently, our products will often
cost more then their lesser quality counterparts. But as the saying
goes, “You get what you pay for.” We do not settle for less than
quality when it comes to our own safety and survival and refuse to ask
you to do so either.
Best Glide Aviation Survival Equipment, Inc., www.bestglide.com and our newest editions, www.adventurersurvivalequipment.com and www.wholesalesurvivalgear.com are dedicated to aviation, wilderness and personal survival equipment. We have no
plans to diversify into other areas of aviation oriented sales such as
pilot convenience products or aircraft maintenance items or into normal camping, hiking or fishing equipment. Survival equipment is our
calling and this is where we feel we can make a difference.
However, we at Best Glide ASE were not satisfied with much of the lower quality survival equipment on the market today, therefore, we offer our own line of survival equipment and survival kits, born of experience and knowledge we have gained from being in the survival equipment business since 2002. It is for this reason that all branches of the United States Military, numerous federal government agencies, to include NASA, CIA, ICE, FBI, State Department and others, trust Best Glide ASE for their survival kit and survival equipment needs. We are the only company we know of where you can purchase your own customized survival kit by simply giving us a call. Because of our very large selection of high quality survival gear, we thrive on making your survival kit just the way you want it. This is why numerous organizations have had us design their survival kits, and more come to us each day. Some of these include the FBI, Border Patrol, State Department, DEA and Mission Aviation Fellowship.
We also, to fill the need of many of our customers for quality, inexpensive survival equipment, launched our own line of survival gear. In Adventurer Series Survival Equipment you will find no frills, quality and dependable survival equipment at a very reasonable price. We offer this line to numerous resellers, so check your favorite survival gear outlet for this line. If they don't currently carry it, ask them to visit us and we will be happy to get them set up with this very popular and growing line of survival equipment and survival kits.
You will find that many of our aviation and personal survival items are
priced below, some well below, our fellow survival equipment retailers.
This is because our main goal is not to make money, but to build
something of which we can be proud. To do this, we must center on
service….not product sales or profit margins. We very much desire to
fill every possible aviation, wilderness or personal survival equipment need a pilot, outdoorsman or adventurer could ever face. Only then will we be happy with our performance.
