I purchased an Aeropack retainer from the Aeropack website, and the Paypal went through Madcow. Are they one of the same? Or do I have a Paypal issue?

I just tried it (didn't finish the payment), but it went to Madcow as well. They might be using Madcow to fulfill their orders. That would be my guess....

Just got the email.
Madcow has acquired Aeropack.
Me too. Here's the announcement:
***
Aero Pack
Madcow Rocketry is pleased to announce the acquisition of Aero Pack. Effective immediately, sales of all Aero Pack products will move to Madcow Rocketry.

Since 1995 Aero Pack has been a leader in high-grade aluminum Quick-Change Motor Retainers for both the amateur and commercial High Power Rocketry markets.

We plan to continue the excellent manufacturing and design legacy with currently in place processes and services. We are pleased that Bob Mosley is continuing to stay involved to ensure Aero Pack’s products meet the same quality standards as they have always had.”

Hello all,

Wanted to just clarify that nothing will change with the Aero Pack dealers. We had a few emails asking about dealers and I know that wasn't clear above in the announcement. Essentially the only difference is the parts will ship from our warehouse instead of Bob's, everything else stays the same. Hope that helps clear everything up for everyone.

Hello all,

This is Bob Mosley, founder and former owner of Aero Pack, Inc. I just want to concur with Mike of Madcow Rocketry that nothing will change other than the product warehouse. As Mike also stated I will stay involved for a while to insure the transition is smooth and as seamless as possible for our valued customers.

Bob,

We’ve never met, so I’m purely assuming that you’re retiring, but, I’m sure I speak for countless rocketeers when I say that your product is absolutely world class and I’ve loved using your retainers. Thank you so very much for developing a fantastic and classy product. Cheers!

Thank you Snaproll for your nice comments and for using Aero Pack products! Hearing comments like yours makes all the hard work worthwhile. Yes I'm retiring, but I'll still be around to answer questions as Madcow gets familiar with all of the Aero Pack products.

Congratulations on a well-deserved retirement. I hope I see you at launch sometime in the future, beer(s) on me!

Bob, congrats on your retirement! Hope you get more opportunity to fly those gorgeous birds in your garage! I loved the P51! You have been an absolutely superlative supplier for us over the years and I will always remember your help when I had to come to your house for 'emergency' retainers to make a launch. Enjoy your well deserved time off in the coming years and thanks again for a great product!

Aeropack Tailcone retainer system - so beautiful
For my first ever Fiberglass build I had to go all the way
It made all the difference in the finish and the functionality is top notch as well
couldn't ask for a better product
