I've changed my mind. Pre/Post WW2 would be the most awesome option. Yes you're limited to guns, rockets, and bombs but the 1930s and 40s were volatile times that were ripe for mercs, contain a plethora of awesome aircraft of all sorts, and are just plain awesome all around. Plus you've got some great media to back the era up.
You've got fantastical stuff like Crimson Skies and Porco Rosso, historical stuff of all sorts from the Spanish Civil War, WW2, and all the little brush fires post war, and all sorts of stuff in between.
You've got awesome aircraft all around as well. Pre war gives you the I15/16 aircraft(solid little buggers), early BF109s(amazing performance), a host of American biplane fighters(like the Grumman series), and dozens of other options.
During the war you've got the Hurricane, Wild/Hellcat, various russian aircraft, the Zero or Nate, Brewster Buffalo, Warhawk, and BF109 just to name a few of the solid core aircraft that might find their way into the hands of mercs.
After the war...well pretty much anything you want. And thats just the fighters. I'd outfit a PBY Catalina much like the BlackCat squadrons of the south pacific for long range night operations for example.
Just so many options...
Hell you could probably pick up a French fighter like the ones pictured for pretty cheap post 1940. ^_^
