I did a search but came up with nothing. I am hoping there is a better alternative to GW flight stands for the Suppressors.
if someone could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

I built up the bases with assorted battlefield stuff to get them to the right hight.

Those flight stands are just bad.

I've seen the smoke trails flight stands on ebay (https://www.ebay.ca/itm/223648468280) along with a site out in Spain who makes similar ones. I myself bought ones off of Etsy that are just prongs, called "jump toppers" that attach to the current GW flight stand that allows you to remove your model at will. This is the seller: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/775144570/jump-topppers-1824pk-non-permanent?ref=shop_home_active_11&crt=1 Either way, hope you find one you like.

Dumb as it might sound, I used these:

Spoiler:

The pillars aren't necessary for all the connecting points to function for the scenery. You can, with a bit of work and a hobby saw, get enough pillars out of a single box to do 3 squads of Suppressors and have a few leftover. I'll see if I can get some photos later if you want to go that route.

Similar; I used a metal rod into the appropriate foot and then hid most of the length in rubble and ruins. The small gap between the top of ruins and the bottom of the foot means that they still appear to be airborne, but hides the rod from normal playing angles.

I replace all flying stems with clear acrylic rod bought from eBay. In case of Suppressors I used 3mm diameter rod and drilled a matching hole in their crotch. I glue the rod to the the base (but not the miniature) during assembly and cover it with drinking straw and blu-tac while painting the base.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.
