Designed by a pilot, Flying Eyes Sunglasses provide maximum comfort with aviation headsets.

Flying Eyes Sunglasses with gradient tint lenses are only $10 more than the standard tint. Like the original lenses, the gradient tint lenses are precision-cast, distortion-free polycarbonate. They are also non-polarized, which is important when using them in the cockpit with LCD screens

The Flying Eyes strap system is designed to be comfortable with an aviation headset. The non-elastic strap on Flying Eyes is soft and thin, so there is no pressure or pain under a headset even after a long day of flying. And thanks to a better seal between the headset and the wearer's head, noise-canceling headsets will be quieter. No more noise leaks!

Additional features include:
Flying Eyes sunglasses are convertible. The removable strap is interchangeable with the included standard temples for outside-the-cockpit wear.

Optically-correct, distortion-free, non-polarized lenses provide clear viewing of LCD multifunction displays on the instrument panel, and through acrylic aircraft windows.

Neutral gray, medium tinted lenses allow accurate perception of color charts and instruments. They are dark enough to remove glare from the brightest and haziest days, but not too dark to see easily in the cockpit. The new gradient lens option subtly compensates for lower-light levels in the cockpit while still reducing outside glare.

Shatter-resistant polycarbonate lenses with a scratch-resistant coating will last for years of professional use.

Flying Eyes sunglasses offer UV400 sun protection, the best UV protection available, because pilots flying at higher altitudes have increased exposure to harmful UV radiation from the sun.

Flying Eyes sunglasses include a Resilamide frame made from advanced polymers. They're up to 20% lighter than other plastics and yet far more durable. Its extreme flexibility, durability and light weight make it the perfect material for comfort in everyday wear. It's also resistant to high temperatures and blocks fading UV exposure.
