Looking to be the next Whip Whitaker, Maverick Mitchell, Goose Bradshaw or Charlie Blackwood? Then you need to get yourself a sporty pair of aeronaut sunglasses before your next outdoor adventure. Aeronaut sunglasses come with a range of features. Here’s a look at which ones should be considered by current or up-an-coming aviators.
According to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration’s guidelines, one of the chief things that pilots should look for when buying a pair of sunglasses is the amount of UV protection involved. That’s because UV exposure in the cockpit can be much more intense than that found at ground level. The administration also strongly recommends that aviators seek out shades with minimal tint and non-polarized, non-photochromic, polycarbonate lenses for use in-flight. The frames should also be durable, well-fitting and compatible with the necessary equipment used during flight (i.e. headsets).
At Pugs, we have a nice assortment of aeronautic sunglasses that take many of those elements into account. Take our #1002 aeronautic sunglasses as an example. The matte gun metal frames are outfitted with spring temples, a modified nose bridge and polycarbonate lenses that sport UV 400 protection. So they should help to provide aeronauts clear viewing during outdoor adventures that take place both in the air and on the ground.
Plan on flying through turbulence? Perhaps the #10423 aeronautic sunglasses may be more apropos. They feature shiny brown, metal frames complete with spring loaded temples and 1.0mm tri-acetate cellulose lenses. The lenses’ inherent design makes them ideal for difficult, cockpit situations that require maximum protection against impacts and vibration related displacement. For aeronauts that prefer eyewear with a bit more flash and color, we’ve other frames and lens combinations too. The list of colors available includes, but is not restricted to, vibrant yellow, bright red, metallic blue, olive green and gold.
