Ultimate Comfort… Whatever the Adventure
The Flying Eyes brand“Classic aviator sunglasses are one of the iconic symbols that defines a pilot,” said Dean Siracusa, president and founder of Flying Eyes. “…well, they used to.” Even though aviator sunglasses look stylish, and maintain that persona, most pilots will tell you that, “wearing a modern headset with traditional aviators can become extremely painful.”
So, why is there a disconnect between a pilot’s gear and their iconic eyewear?
Aviator style sunglasses were designed in the 1930s, and it wasn’t until the 1970s that pilots began wearing headsets designed to block out ambient flight noise. Today’s modern headsets are engineered for a very specific purpose. Wearing “regular” aviators or other common sunglasses with an active noise reduction headset creates discomfort, and prevents proper function.
Flying Eyes was founded to design and engineer the world’s lightest, most comfortable aviator sunglasses. By redesigning the temples, Flying Eyes has created eyewear with thin temples that improve fit and comfort while wearing noise-canceling headsets.
