Their history dates back to 1983 when the Stars were affiliates of the San Diego Padres. They became the first professional sports team to ever play in Sin City since 1958. Their inaugural season was one of immense success with an 83-60 record score. Through the years, they had terrific games with a few losses and eventually won their 2nd championship with the PCL in 1988.

More recently, the Las Vegas Aviators have signed on with the Oakland Athletics for a two year PDC until 2020. The new change in their name references Howard Hughes, an aviation pioneer. Their new logo features a pilot with a flight helmet, using their new color scheme of orange, navy blue, gold, yellow, tangerine, and gray.

The Las Vegas Aviators play games at the Las Vegas Ballpark; their new home stadium. The first game at the ballpark sold out to a crowd of over 11,000, and they won with a score of 10-2 against the Sacramento River Cats.

The team is regularly covered by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Las Vegas Suns, while all games are broadcasted by NBC Sports Radio Affiliate KRLV 920-AM.
