Aviate is a lifestyle brand founded in Birmingham, Alabama, that cultivates a sense of travel and encourages everyone to check off bucket list experiences. Still based in Birmingham, and most known for our hats donning 3-letter airport identifiers (BHM, anyone?), Aviate now covers 160 cities, 45 states, and 3 Countries by staying true to our motto, “Play hard. Travel often.”
Our mission is to impact all those who use our products. Everyone takes pride in where they’re from, where they have been, or where they want to travel to and the airport code identifier is what we use to help build community. The brand’s definition of “Home” now includes the entire United States, Canada, and Bermuda in addition to its birthplace of Birmingham.
We exist to encourage our customers to check off bucket list experiences. We provide a simple brand concept that is centered around community. Which is something that brings groups of people together from all walks of life. At Aviate, we aim to bring community together through the desire to promote the welfare of others, "MORE THAN JUST A HAT.”
