In 2020, following the establishment of P. League+, Super Basketball League team Taoyuan Pauian Archiland splitted the team in two, which one of both joined P. League+ and rebranded to Taoyuan AirApe.[1] The AirApe became one of the four teams of the inaugural P. League+ season.

On November 1, 2020, the AirApe was renamed to Taoyuan Pilots.[2] On October 6, 2022, the team added its sponsor's name, Pauian Archiland Construction, now known as the Taoyuan Pauian Pilots.[3]
