About Us

Thank you for your interest in the CQ Headset by Card Machine Works.

We are a woman-owned business in central Texas operated by Tanya and Scott Card.  We developed the CQ Headset out of our own need and are excited to share it with the aviation community.  Our last 25 years of flying have afforded us great personal joys.  Right now, we are flying our Oshkosh award-winning RV9A about 200 hours per year exclusively with the CQ1 Headset.  We use our product multiple times per week.  Sometimes on short flights exploring our own neighborhood, and just as often on longer adventures, such as from central Texas to Grenada!

Both Scott and Tanya are instrument rated pilots and hold FFI credentials for formation flight in waivered airspace (airshows).  Scott additionally holds a commercial rating and Tanya is quite active with Pilots N Paws, flying rescued animals.  As the proprietors of Card Machine Works, our goals are to have fun, develop and execute with an eye toward simplicity, and extend our efforts with the aviation community that has so enriched our lives.
