The Aviator Bird Harness


Now your companion has freedom to exercise, fly and explore any area without escaping your control.


Can a parrot, designed by nature for millions of years, be truly mentally and physically healthy without flight? The Parrot University has spent 20 years researching what makes a parrot a parrot. We have found the number one characteristic that defines "a parrot" is its ability to fly. Flight is fundamental to every component of a parrot's mind and body.

Learning to fly well is the most complicated and important task a parrot can learn. Your pet will be healthier, more active, more coordinated, and increase its' visual acuity. Flying helps with language development, higher intelligence, self-confidence, self-esteem and ultimately makes a very social companion.

The AVIATOR Harness Leash Extensions

  • Aviator Harness Leash Extensions attach directly onto Aviator Harness wrist strap.
  • Beginners should start with short Leash Extension to gain experience with your flight area. It is easy to misgauge distances and allow your bird to land on a tree limb or roof that is out of reach. Many birds that are learning to fly are able to fly up but afraid to fly down from high perches.
  • Leash Extensions are made from high quality nylon and rubber shock cords that expand as much as 100% depending upon the health and strength of your friend.
  • Do not connect multiple extensions together. The connection can become snagged on grass making it difficult for a bird to maintain flight. Mow grass short to eliminate as much drag as possible when flying.
  • Other Aviator products the Aviator Bird Harness, Aviator Flight Line, Aviator Yard Perch, Aviator T-Shirt, and Custom Harness Sizes available for all birds. Example: Turkeys, Peafowl, Swans, Herons.
