American Optical sunglasses made their debut as early as the 1930s. However, it was in 1958 that the Flight Goggle 58, now known as the Original Pilot Sunglasses, was produced for the US Military to provide maximum protection, optical performance and comfort. More than 50 years have passed and the Original Pilot Sunglasses is still the preferred aviator sunglasses of all US Military branches.
In fact, the Original Pilot Sunglasses was honored to be the first ever sunglasses to be brought up to the moon with the crew of the “Eagle” lunar landing in 1969. It was subsequently featured in the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC. If you are looking for the same level of comfort and optical performance demanded by US military pilots, look to American Optical sunglasses. Alongside the Original Pilot Sunglasses, US Wings offers a choice selection of other high performance American Optical models.
