aire power traveler
Anyone know what happened to the Aire Power Traveler. I remember seeing something regarding it a few years ago and went looking for info on it and wasn't able to find anything on the aire website. It was aire's version of the jet ranger.
It's On Hold
The AIRE Power Traveler has been put on hold for awhile. AIRE is so busy with it's main line production items right now all specialty items have been side-lined, for the moment. I have no doubt the Power Traveler will be back, but not this year!
Take care out there,
Don't give up on the P.T. Tracy. I am still interested also. I do believe that , although small, there is a market up here for that boat. Get them built, and I will buy one....an orange Power Traveler.
...as if I need a fourth boat...also, get us longer summers, or at least shorter winters.
I suppose orange is a good color, especially if one is lost on a regular basis!
I will not give up on the Power Traveler. In fact I will the call the boys at AIRE AGAIN early tomorrow morning, and beg some more.....just for you.
I'll be back,
Recommend trying one before you buy. They are sure a neat idea, but aren't very portable.
I am looking for a plane portable jet boat. I have considered the alaska series jet ranger but I am not sold on their construction methods. I have owned several boats made by Aire in the past which is why I brought the PT up. I could not find any info online on the PT so would appreciate any pictures/specs etc...

Over the 6 years 2 small holes aren't too bad for 1100 Denier fabric. The current production 401AJR and 430AJR Inflatable Jet boats are built with 4000 Denier bottoms, double fabric under the tubes and grizzly claw armor. They are truly the toughest bottoms in the inflatable boat business!!
In the past 6 years, I've had to work on 3 other Alaskan Jet rangers that were damaged in the field. Even though I fixed them all for free, I wouldn't consider the damage done by bears or dragging rolled up boats across the asphalt parking lot problems caused by my designs or construction methods.
In fact I would consider the construction of the Alaskan Jet Ranger 401AJR and 430AJR inflatable jet boats the toughest inflatable boats in the business!!
When you're Jet Boating in remote rivers where there are only a couple inches of water I personally wouldn't be comfortable using anything less.
