NEW Ladies’ WASP Italian Goatskin A-2 Leather Flight Jacket:
Amelia Earhart WASP A-2 Leather Flight Jacket
There’s nothing that is more distinctive and legendary as the A-2 Leather Flight Jacket like the one worn by the WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots) that flew aircraft to forward bases during WW-2 and was popularized by Amelia Earhart. This A-2 Leather Flight Jacket also served as the basis for Indiana Jones leather jacket in the movie RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK that Harrison Ford wore. You can have the same distinction feel and look with a Italian Goatskin A-2 Jacket that you can ordered as plane Jane original or have personalized with patches and name tags based on military specs.
Our A-2 Leather Flight Jackets have been used in several movies including Indiana Jones, The RED TAILS, and Space Cowboys just to name a few. We supply the U.S. Military with both men’s and women’s A-2 Leather Flight Jacket that is Mil-Spec.
This jacket was worn by the B-17 crews and P-40/51 pilots featured below that flew missions during World War 2 that made the A-2 Leather Flight Jacket legendary that it is today.
Jacqueline Cochran formed and headed the Women Air Force Service Pilots (WASP). Cochran, the famed aviatrix, became the first woman to break the sound barrier. Combat duties were filled by male pilots which left a vital need for service pilots during WWII. WASPs filled the need. The WASPs logged over 60 million miles and flew virtually every type of aircraft from trainers to heavy bombers. They would often fly them as skillfully or better than their male counterparts. Recognition of these pilots were not until much later in life:
- 1984 – Awarded the Victory Medal and American Theater medal
- 2009 – Recognized and awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for invaluable service in WWII
An A-2 leather flight jacket is that perfect, classic casual look and fit specifically for women that can be worn with either blue jeans or US WINGS chino khaki pants, for example. Enjoy the luxurious, soft, old world leather, with your option to personalize your jacket to support: the military, your team, company, event, or organization, with Olive Drab name tags and/or patches. Perfect for companies to recognize their associates and their customers. Nothing says it better than with an A-2 Leather Flight Jacket like worn by our founder and owner Sergeant David Hack.
The Modern A-2:
In 1931, the Type A-2 jacket was standardized by the US Army Air Corps to succeed the Type A-1. The A-2 has sturdy snaps, reinforced pockets, snap down collar. Replaced the A-1’s buttoned front with a zipper for added protection against the elements in the open cockpit. The creation of the modern A-2 was after a brief period of the Air Force not issuing jackets to pilots. Influenced by the popular film, “Top Gun”. The modern design differs from the original design in several ways. With a looser fit, made from goatskin in seal brown, side entry pockets, and an inside wallet pockets.
