Ned Robbins: Airline Pilot

Ned Robbins knows the value of flying with his Voyage-Air

Ned Robbins knows quite a bit about airline travel.  In fact, he’s a full-time pilot for a major airline!  His guitar is always along for the ride… in fact, Ned will soon own the Voyage-Air guitar with the most total airline miles.

“I play bluegrass music,” explained Ned.  “I went to a local jam in Phoenix, AZ, and one of the other players had one of your guitars.  As a pilot, I had been looking for a travel guitar that was easy to take along on trips.  I played your guitar, and decided to order one.

“I actually have 2 of your guitars.  The first one I ordered from your website: the VAOM-02 model.  I did not tell my wife that I had already ordered one, and she had ordered one for me as a Christmas present - the VAOM-04.  I like both of them but the one my wife ordered sounds a little better than the other one.

“I originally contacted Voyage-Air guitar to find out about the strings.  I like the way the guitar sounds and plays so much that I only want to replace the strings with the same ones it came with.

“Now that I’ve spent some time traveling with the Voyage-Air, I have a few comments:

“I like the way the case for the guitar appears to be a "normal" back-pack. Most people never suspect it is a guitar, and this is great from a security point of view.  I feel comfortable leaving the case unattended for a short period, as compared to a "regular" guitar case that is not safe to leave unattended at all.

“I have played with some other travelers who have the carry-on electric guitars. While they are still trying to figure out how to plug their guitar into the clock-radio in the hotel room, I am up and playing a full-size acoustic guitar in under a minute.

“Finally, the compact size of the Voyage-Air guitar case meets all size requirements for carry-on luggage.  It fits in the overhead bins of every style plane in our fleet.  And it legally fits under the seats of most planes.  As a pilot, I’ve been able to personally confirm this.

“Thanks for the fine product.  I’ve already handed out all the business cards that came with the guitar.  Send me more!”

Owner Testimonials

  • 5star-100
    I received my VAOM-1C and boy does it sing!  I am the proud and happy owner of several top-notch Martins: a D35 Johnny Cash, a HD28e, a solid DCPA4R as well as a 1973 00-18. I also had a 2003 D18 which I sold because it wasn't so good. I was expecting the VAOM-1C to sound ok but not more. "Can't have the best of both worlds" I thought. Well, now I do. It is just exquisite, so melodic and yet with a surprising sustain and expressivity. It is a true jewel at a more than decent price! All the Best and THANK YOU!

    My wife and I travel a lot and in the past have had issues with taking a guitar with me......they're either too bulky for the overhead compartment, or I have to let the luggage handlers toss around my guitars like they're a bag of beans. I recently purchased one of your VAOM-04 guitars, and I'm totally impressed with the sound and the playability of this instrument. My first choice is my Martins, but since I received the VAOM-O4 I haven't put it down. I would recommend this guitar to any player, even if you don't travel that much. I'm looking forward to my next trip. I may just spend most of the trip playing this guitar.
    Great Job Voyage-Air.

    It’s considered a “travel guitar,” and it truly is a remarkably portable instrument; however, that label does it a disservice, because honestly, it’s a damn nice guitar. It just happens to have a nifty set of hinges that allow the neck to fold over on the top, making it far more compact and transport friendly. I love my Telair!

    I am pleasantly surprised at the quality and genius behind this amazingly compact, but great sounding guitar!! I work in the movie industry and travel quite a bit, and being able to bring my guitar as a carry-on wherever I go is just what I've been looking for! The overall sound is amazingly rich for its size, and the folding mechanics work like a dream! If you’re wondering if it's worth getting, the answer is a big YES!!

    I bought a VAD-04 strictly for travel and light use. The day I bought it I paid a visit to United Airlines. As I was walking up to the counter the clerk said that he had seen these before and that there was no problem taking it on as carry-on. .I think that this is a great value and a nice sounding piece All in all it is a winner in my book. I’ve heard less sound from much more expensive instruments. I may mike it because I think it compares to my Taylor 814ce and Breedlove it surprised me!

    I travel a lot, and for years, I schlepped my heavy Goodall Jumbo, always worried about it getting damaged and stolen.  I recently purchased a Voyage Air guitar and love it.  Its light, gets on planes, and sounds terrific. It has made travelling with a guitar a no-brainer.  Even after closing and opening, it stays very close to being in tune. I recommend this guitar to anyone who likes to play wherever they go.
