Cockpit USA

Commissioned by an original Tuskegee pilot belonging to the Long Island, NY chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen and developed jointly with Cockpit USA, the first company to ever produce a jacket of this kind in the 80s, the new Tuskegee Airmen aviation jacket represents this group of pilots’ bravery, their planes and different squadrons. Crafted from supple brown goatskin to the pattern of the current A-2 model Cockpit USA makes for the U.S. Air Force, this jacket boasts two front snap close flap pockets, epaulettes, knitted cuffs and waist band along with an array of intricately embroidered patches on both sleeves and a specially designed, grand victory ‘V’ back patch which includes all the airplanes flown by these airmen. Along with two interior pockets, twin pen pockets, the interior boasts a piece saluting the accomplishments of the Tuskegee Airmen, not only in the skies but also for breaking through the racial barriers of the time with success. Proudly made in the USA.

About Cockpit USA...

Cockpit USA is a brand built on the firm foundations of an affinity for leather, aviation and an all American heritage. With a story that begins in the skies… It was in the early 70s when President and founder of Cockpit USA Jeff Clyman was taking flight in WWII aircrafts sporting his father’s Army Air Corps aviator jacket, when he was bombarded by crowds of people wanting to know where they could get their hands on one too.

Based in New York City and originally started in 1975 under the corporate name Avirex Ltd, Cockpit USA has a vibrant history. As a current contractor to the U.S. Government, Cockpit USA has supplied the USA government with various products including since 1990 the A-2 leather pilot jacket. Cockpit USA has also supplied various foreign governments with their own version of the A-2 pilots’ jackets as well as Navy jackets for certain USA submarine units and international Navies.

Cockpit USA is a name synonymous with authenticity and a sense of strong American legacy. A lifestyle that has been adopted by iconic celebrities such as Sylvester Stallone, (Rocky III wearing the company’s B-3 shearling jacket), Governor Arnold Schwartznegger, Bruce Willis, Nicholas Cage, Steven Spielberg, Steve McQueen, Tom Selleck, Jerry Seinfeld, Lenard Nemoy, Dan Akroyd, PDiddy, Hugh Jackman, Richard Simmons, Sharon Stone, Christina Aguilera, President Bush and President  Obama and just recently Beyonce! 

The contemporary collection, Civilian Pilot Training, is a capsule under Cockpit USA specializing in leather and textile outerwear, knitwear and shirting. With each piece being a translation of the company's vast treasure trove archive of genuine historic military finds, styles are recreated with expert craftsmanship and commitment to quality. A true salute to garments of times past and the heroes who have worn them, Cockpit USA maintains a signature standard of execution; manufacturing 80% of products at home in the U.S. using only leathers of the highest grade, heavy duty hard wear with inspiration drawn from military design.
