History of the A-2:
The Type A-2 flying jacket was standardized by the U.S. Army Air Corps as the successor to the Type A-1 flying jacket in 1931. The A-2 has sturdy snaps and reinforced pockets, a snap down shirt-style collar could be closed completely in order to protect the pilot from the wind. In addition, it replaced the A-1’s buttoned front with a zipper for added protection against the elements in the open cockpit. It was said that the popular film, “Top Gun” may have influenced the new A-2. The first Air Force A-2 contract was awarded to Avirex, but all subsequent contracts from 1988 to 1998 were awarded to Neil Cooper USA, now U.S. Wings of Ohio.

I just picked my jacket up from the post office, and I’m beaming! My old man had a Cooper A-2, and I’ve wanted my own since I was a little boy, so I acted on a bit of an impulse a couple weeks ago and I definitely don’t regret it. It’s a damned find jacket. Thank you very much to US Wings!

So glad you like the jacket.

These are, by far, the best flight jackets available on the market today, maybe ever. When I was supplying flight jackets for my aircrew, I many times had to justify the cost of these flight jackets, over the inferior jackets available. That was easy to do. The construction and materials used ensured a pilot or aircrew would have their beloved flight jacket last them their entire career, and beyond…
The Goatskin A2 Jacket arrived today, awesome, it is stunning, I knew it would be good but, it is just fabulous, better than I dared imagine. All I need to do now it find a nice WW2 aeroplane to fly whilst wearing it.
Thanks too for the baseball cap and USN suitbag, and especially your book , I was hoping that I could get a copy, as I had seen it on your website, so am chuffed to have got a copy, it was good to find out more about your background, but then I am a psych major as you say on your side of the pond.

I must say your leather jackets are of the highest quality! How refreshing to find an item made in the USA! KUDO’S!!!! I’m a retired CW4 of 40 years in the Army & National Guard with two tours in Vietnam as a Huey pilot. I’ve always wanted a top shelf leather flight jacket and I’m glad I found your website! I finished the book on Sgt. David D. Hack yesterday. If this story is true, and I have no reason to doubt it, it made me proud to be a Nam vet and a customer.

Just received my new AF A2, and I couldn’t be happier!! THIS is what I wanted the first time. Heavier leather feel, American-made, ACTUAL ISSUE!! The size 42 is THE right size too.
Please thank all the staff who handled my order, and SGT. Hack for another cap (even nicer than the first one), and a proper hanger (included in the box). That was a nice touch.
I will hopefully be ordering the same jacket in the American-made horsehide soon. Can’t wait for that one either!
P.S. We got 1-3 inches of snow on the way to Austin this pm and night! Great time to finally get the jacket…
Oh my God! It’s beautiful!!! Please pass this msg on to the Sergeant that you guys are geniuses. The 50 long is perfect (that was his idea!). I’m going to put you both in my will! It’s really nice. Good job.
