The Aviator Harnesses for pet birds and Parrots was developed by Steve Hartman founder of The Parrot University established in 1984 at the Hartman Aviary. The Parrot University evolved out of the need to develop new husbandry practices and educate others in the industry. Hartman Aviary opened its own lab facility to The Ohio State University Veterinary School to provide an accredited course for students interested in avian medicine and research.
With over thirty trips to Central America, South America and Asia Steve has developed significant knowledge of many aspects of Parrots in their natural habitat. This coupled with the experience of 2,800 flighted Parrots at the Hartman Aviary since 1984 revealed a great deal regarding the importance of flight on the mental and physical health of pet birds. This experience led to the development of the Aviator Harness and Aviator Flight Line.
Aviator Harnesses and the Aviator Flight Line allow your pet bird or Parrot to enjoy and master the skill of flying safely without the worry of your bird escaping. Aviator Harnesses are ideal for enjoying your birds company when you are out and about, fitted with an elasticated lead for security.
Learning to fly well is the most complicated and important task your Parrot can learn. Your companion will be healthier, more active, fitter and more co-ordinated. Flying helps with everything from self-confidence and self-esteem to sociability and intelligence.
Northern Parrots are the sole UK importer of Aviator products, with sizes for most bird species and colours to suit; thinking outside of the cage has never been so rewarding.
