Don't Call Them
THE FIRST SCIENTIFICALLY RESEARCHED AND DEVELOPED FLIGHT GLASSES FOR PILOTS.
Enhance contrast whether you’re looking into cloud formations or reading your instruments
Our proprietary coatings eliminate glare, balance color, and improve clarity
Hand-tooled Japanese Titanium frame for headset and oxygen mask compatibility
Blocks ultraviolet and infrared heat energy, keeping your eyes cool and focused on long flights
Choosing your lenses:
Sky technology combines eleven elements molecularly bonded within a German crystalline lens, including rare-earth neodymium. Thirteen proprietary coatings are applied to the lens to block all harmful UV, absorb infrared heat and provide balanced color and clarity.
BIFOCAL / RX
Advanced notch filtering technology custom crafted to meet your Bifocal, Single Vision and Progressive prescriptions. FLT24 Rx prescription lenses for pilots are constructed from the same high-quality polymer as our standard lenses, with the same clarity, contrast, infrared and ultraviolet protection.
The upcoming FLT series is the first to offer notch filtering in a lightweight, shatterproof lens. Constructed from a durable polymer with dual high-quality coatings, FLT series lenses are at the cutting edge of aviation optics. Enhanced contrast, impossible clarity, next level performance: these are not your father's aviators.
Choosing your VLT:
The amount of light that reaches your eyes through your lenses is called Visible Light Transmission (VLT). When deciding which kind of lenses to purchase, a good place to start is with the VLT. The higher the percentage of VLT, the lighter the lens tint, and therefore, the more light the lens will let through to the eye. Alternatively, lenses with a lower VLT percentage will have a darker tint and will block more light from coming through to the eye.
Our darkest offerings, the SKY9 and FLT9, transmit 9% VLT of available light. Yet you can still render your flight deck--or your iPad--in sharp detail. Perfect for flying west, chasing the sun or in very exposed cockpits.
The FLT15 and SKY18 Lens transmit 15% and 18% of available light, respectively. These medium-tint lenses are a great choice for general and mixed conditions.
For darker cockpits and pilots whose eyes require more light, the SKY30 and FLT24 lenses allow for high levels of light transmission with unparalleled comfort and protection. Pilots who typically don’t wear or frequently take off their sunglasses during flight find that these lenses can stay on all day, in all conditions, even on the jetway.
Choosing your frames:
Specially designed for the Patriots Jet Team, the Patriot offers exceptional peripheral vision in a wrap-style frame constructed from titanium alloy.
Made from high-temperature injected plastics in a base 8 wrap design for optimal peripheral eye protection, coupled with thin titanium temple pieces.
A tribute to the classic aviator design, hand-tooled, and serial numbered Japanese titanium featuring temple pieces that are light, strong, and seamlessly conform to your head.
