We’re part of Moto-Lita, makers of the finest hand-made British steering wheels.

We are a British manufacturer

One of the things that makes our range of leather flying jackets unique, and one of the things that makes us so proud of our range, is that we didn’t just decide to make some jackets. Our range has developed because people have come to us for our skills and expertise. It starts with our Chairman, Simon Green, a former pilot himself, working with others to design their ideal jacket

Simon knows what pilots want, he understands the movements they need to make and he knows the constraints a tiny cockpit can put on that movement. He understands that the need for comfort and practicality has to be tempered with a sartorial style that defines the professional pilot’s position. By listening to our customers and combining his knowledge of flying with his understanding of high quality materials, Simon has helped us to create jackets that have become firm favourites (indeed, old friends) of pilots and aircrew around the world.

Many of our commissioned jackets, created for specific squadrons, are available to you. But one, of which we are particularly proud, is only available to serving RAF officers. This is the MoD Approved Pattern Aircrew Leather Flying Jacket, designed by us in cooperation with the RAF to form part of official uniform. As the approved leather aircrew jacket it pays us the highest accolade: it defines the quality of design, workmanship, care and attention that goes into each and every jacket we make.

We love making leather flying jackets and one of the best things about it is knowing how much people love wearing them - we hope that very soon you’ll become the owner of an Aviation Leathercraft jacket and come to know exactly what we mean.
