Wholesale Flight Suits
The Propper nomex flight suit coveralls is a garment that covers the entire body, which is worn when operating aircrafts. The flight suit was developed during World War I to keep pilots warm in open cockpits. Flight suits featured multiple pockets with button, snap, or zipper closures to prevent pilots from losing articles and important documents while they maneuver. Most flight suits today are made of nomex, a light weight durable material that is fire/flame resistant, which will protect pilots in case of a fire in the cockpit. Typically a clear pocket can be found on the thigh of the suit where a pilot will keep a map of the air crafts destination. Proppers nomex flight suits are commonly worn by pilots and military personnel operating aircrafts including planes, jets and helicopters. Flight suits arent only limited to pilots of high speed aircrafts; helicopter pilots and flight engineers typically wear flight suits to provide the same protection.

The CWU 27/P is the official flight suit issued to US air crews and are sewn to military specification FNS/PD 96-17 (MIL-C-83141A).
