During World War II the WASP pilots (Women’s Air Service Pilots) needed a leather flight jacket. Most were issued with the typical A-2 Army Air force jacket but some had jackets custom made to replicate the Army issue in a softer more feminine lambskin with the traditional patch pockets of the A-2 and custom side entry hand warmer pockets.
Worn by the few Army Air Corps fighter pilots who managed to take flight on December 7th 1941, this jacket is testament to the bravery shown on that unforgettable day when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
A group of the Tuskegee Airmen from the New York City area wanted Cockpit USA to design and execute a unique iconic flight jacket with insignia and decorative motifs representing the different units that fought, and the combat aircraft they flew during WWII.
This goatskin jacket pays homage to both the celebrated General Henry ‘Hap' Arnold and the B-25 bomber, the air- craft responsible for achieving the Allies first triumph over Fascism during WWII with its daring raid on Tokyo in April 1942.
