Shine a Light on Your Night Flying with Sporty’s Flight Gear Flashlight

Shine a Light on Your Night Flying with Sporty’s Flight Gear Flashlight

It’s the only flashlight with FARs printed right on the handle

Sporty’s Flight Gear Flashlight is constructed with aircraft grade aluminum and includes a focusing bezel that provides both flood and spot light options. Independent buttons for both red and white light mean you won’t have to scroll through one to get to the other and unique tactile cues make it easy to find the right one in the dark. The flashlight is smart too: If one color of light is on and you want to switch to the other, the first color automatically shuts off. Both colors have a high and low setting, and they are pilot-friendly organized.

“We’ve examined and tested dozens of flashlights, and we finally decided to custom-design a perfect flashlight for pilots,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “We went above and beyond to make sure this flashlight was perfect for our needs as general aviation pilots.”

Since logging night flight and night landings can be confusing, Sporty’s printed the two FARs most relevant to flying at night right on the body of the light. They are FAR 1.1 (logging night time) and FAR 61.57 (night landings).

The Flight Gear Flashlight [7499A] uses two AA batteries (included) and comes with a wrist lanyard. It is available for $32.95 at sportys.com or by calling 1.800.SPORTYS.
