Pioneer Control Grips (formerly known as “Pioneer Aircraft”) was started by the incredible Guy George. His craftsmanship lead him to create the most comfortable and stylish control grips ever made for general aviation. Guy says, “To the pilot, the control grip IS your airplane. It’s what the pilot feels. There’s no other component that is used more than it is. Why not do it right?” So he did. The perfectly contoured designs fit every crevice of the pilot’s hand, creating a comfortable and personal feel. You can find the Pioneer in hundreds of aircraft across the world including: Lancair, Velocity, Vans, Zenith and Columbia Aircraft. The torch has been passed and we are now here to carry on that legacy of greatness!

I love my Pioneer grips! They're beautifully made, have a very comfortable feel in my hand and are a classy addition to my RV-7 cockpit. Pioneer grips weren’t the cheapest but the quality and feel are better than anything else out there…Definitely worth the price. They’re the pilot’s primary connection to the airplane. Putting a plain old bike grip on an RV control stick would be like playing a Steinway piano with rubber gloves on!
