About us


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, Cessna 172 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 design build projects he created a different means to continue his love of flying. 

Co-Founder Oscar Alvarez is a Operations Manager, Techie, Art Lover 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.
