The evolution of the aviation industry starting in the 1930's coincided with the advent of the Zippo. Many of the pioneering manufacturers of aircraft, missiles, satellites and other related advanced technology vehicles such as Boeing, Lockheed, Northrop Grumman, Beechcraft, Bell and many others used the Zippo for advertising, marketing and promotion. As a result, aviation-related Zippos offer the collector a wide choice of themes.
