  • About AVIATOL

    An introduction to our activities at AVIATOL

    The name ‘AVIATOL’ comes from the word ‘AVIATOR’.

    At AVIATOL, we develop educational materials related to space.

    Our goal is to provide learning opportunities that will also touch your heart, going beyond what you can learn in a school setting.


    Apart from educational materials, AVIATOL also produces goods with a rocketry and aeronautical theme.

    We will continue trying to provide everyone with beautiful things to stir their emotions.

    The future for which AVIATOL aims

    Our greatest goal at AVIATOL is to change the way that people learn.


    We think that the style of learning provided in the modern school classroom leaves something to be desired. Education works best when we seek out knowledge because we have something which we would like to achieve


    Plenty of people dreamed of launching rockets and airplanes when they were children.

    Our current foremost goal is to develop and produce engines which can be mounted in small-scale rockets used in Japan for educational purposes.

    In order to procure the funding necessary for this, we are currently focused on producing artistic objects and developing educational resources.


    A future where studying is fun, because we study for a purpose.

    If we can achieve this, a new world would dawn. AVIATOL strives to make this reality
