The Type A-2 leather flight jacket is one of the most classic and immediately recognizable articles of military clothing ever designed. It is most closely associated with World War II U.S. Army fighter pilots, who often decorated their jackets with squadron patches and elaborate artwork painted on the back.

Cockpit USA (formerly Avirex LTD), the prime and only USAF government contractor for Air Force issue flight jackets, now offers the updated current 21st century version of the classic A-2 Air Force pilot's jacket, made out of the same luxurious Mil. Spec. government goatskin as earlier A-2 versions. The Air Force life support division listened to their pilots' requests to modify the 1987 version of the A-2 to accommodate current needs. This jacket now offers a host of new features which do not detract from its authentic appearance but provide the user with modern day conveniences. These include hand warming pockets, underneath flap pockets, inside pockets for personal equipment and a special pen pocket inside to allow pilots access to these articles.  The A-2 Leather Jacket also features  snap-down collar and  knit cuffs and waistband.

Proudly made in the U.S.A.

Sizes:
 These jackets are roomier so order your regular size.  The sizes are standard men's coat sizes.  Generally speaking, Small is 38-40, Medium is 40-42, Large is 42-44, and XL is 46-48, and XXL is 50-52.  Please note that sizes 48 and higher are slightly more expensive (price shown in cart).
