About us

Flying begins as a fascination, generally at a young age and develops into a passion. Bob Verna, Founder of AIR ILLUSION, started flying with a Top Flight Balsa Wood glider. That led to a Piper Cub, which led to a Piper Tri-Pacer and so on. Many flight hours later he diverted his flying time to preserving his passion. As an Electrical Engineer, General Contractor & Inventor and with his Extensive Experience in Projects of Engineering and Design, he created a different means to continue his love of flying. Co-Founder Oscar Alvarez is a Construction Manager, Technology Wiz, Art Lover, Serial Entrepreneur and Airplane Aficionado. Subsequently, AIR ILLUSION was born as a Design Manufacturing & Consulting Firm. We create Custom Aviation Themed Spaces and Functional Art from Vintage Aircraft Parts.
