A-1 Leather Flight Jacket Z21X013

Made out of soft lambskin leather, our A-1 Leather Flight jacket is a true homage to the original predecessor of the A-2 jacket. Cockpit USA honors the legacy of American Fashion by showcasing this modern version of a historic jacket used by Air Corps pilots during the 1920s and 1930s. First produced in 1927 and decommissioned in the early 1930s after the introduction of the now famous A-2 jacket; the A-1 made its first steps at the creation of the iconic leather Flight Jacket. Like the original model, our A-1 Jacket features two front flapped pockets as well as knit cuffs and a waistband to keep cold air out, which were used to protect pilots flying sky high in open aircraft cockpits. The first models of the A-1 had five front buttons for closure and two snap buttons at the bottom; as well as two neck latch buttons also included in our version. By using superior soft grade lambskin, Cockpit USA’s A-1 Leather flight jacket is our interpretation of the 1926 specified South African Cape skin. The Made in USA A-1 Leather Flight Jacket is our take of an outerwear style that represents the sacrifices made by the early fighter pilots of the 20th Century.
