Long in the making, we’ve finally published our new website. We’ve tried to make it informative rather than just ‘glossy’ because most of our site visitors have already heard of us and simply want to know more about a particular item.
Padpilot has been growing very strongly over the last two years. This is no accident. Over the last ten years we’ve reinvested most if not all our profit into creating better content and more sophisticated illustrations.
We hope you enjoy the new site and, as always, if you want to ask us something, just pick up the ‘phone.
