What a fantastic shop. I was recomended to visit the Aviation Gift Centre by a fellow collector at Manchester who gave it rave reviews, and he was right. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable and nothing was a problem for them. I purchased a Corgi model for my collection and am delighted by the whole experience. I will be using the shop as my main outlet for my collection simply due to the friendly professional welcoming feeling I got and also for the sheer range they offer. A must... (read more)

I would like to disagree completely with the adverse reviews that I am shocked to see posted about Airtrans Aviation Hobby and Gift Centre, EMA. Having been a loyal customer since 1996 I have never experienced any discourteous service ... in fact just walking into the shop is enough to make me smile. A fantastic range of products continues to be offered despite the downsizing the shop has dealt with effectively since moving to its current location and prices in my opinion are fair to...

A fantastic shop, excellent layout, quite cheap and very friendly staff who are more than happy to help you out with any queries or questions you may have. They also give detailed explanations into what you are about to buy IE. Scanners. They show you how they work, give you free book guides [second hand] and throw things in usually! I got a 6 pack of re-chargeable batteries for free!
A truly amazing shop. (read more)

Airtrans has gone down a very steep hill in recent years, I gave up on them in 2000. It seems they have little or no regard for customer satisfaction and their general poor attitude would put many people off spending their cash with them.
I would rather shop with a company that at least tries to show an interest in what they are selling. (read more)

Airtrans East Midlands Airport - I have to agree with what's been said about this outlet. They sell a lot of secondhand stuff which probably didn't cost them anything but that they sell for an absolute fortune (old magazines, books, etc.), and the staff...well.... (read more)

A former loyal customer of this Airtrans outlet which sells models of airplanes, having spent hundreds of pounds there, I purchased a DVD from the above outlet, which I was assured would play on my region 2 DVD player. Having got home I found out it would not play. I put it in - nothing happened.
I took it back to the shop to get a refund. At this point I was informed by the overweight, arrogant guy behind the counter that quote "A DVD is a DVD and it will play on any player". I... (read more)
