The American Ultimate Disc League formally announced the Aviators as an expansion team in October 2014, to compete in the West Division for the 2015 season.[2] During the ensuing offseason, the Aviators signed much of the LA talent pool, as well as luring some players from the San Jose Spiders.[3]

The Aviators earned their first AUDL playoff birth in 2016,[4] and advanced again the following season.[5] In 2018, the Aviators advanced to AUDL Championship Weekend.[6]
