  • Cockpit's ANJ-4 Jacket

    The ANJ-4/AN-6552 was a late WW2 development of a sheepskin jacket designed to be more accommodating in a cockpit in lieu of the bulkier B-3 sheepskin, which was used by all aircrew but was not as comfortable in a tight confine. Experimental test samples were developed of this same jacket in leather with various types of linings for warmth and flexibility to accommodate those crewmembers that needed a lighter less bulky material. So a leather version of the ANJ-4 was drawn up and sampled but never produced.

    ANJ-4 Jacket ANJ-4 Jacket

    Cockpit has taken this concept and created our own engineered version of this universally useful jacket, as it permits the wearer to use its two-way zip to sit in a cockpit or a vehicle and loosen the waist as well as side buckles to tighten it to keep the wind out, with added zip sleeves, similar to the British flight jackets, to allow gloves to fit under the sleeves; great for motorcycling as well. The leather is a supple but durable vintage lamb and carries the features of its sheepskin predecessor with USN style patch pockets and a large real shearling collar with throat latch to keep wind out and warmth in. The modern lining is our WW2 parachute pattern nylon quilted to trademark Primaloft for extra warmth, softness and flexibility and two added inside pockets for modern convenience. A truly unique, contemporary jacket with a vintage configuration that sits slightly lower than the sheepskin jackets of the same era for additional weather protection. Proudly made in the USA.

  • WCW: Jerrie Mock

    In 1964, an Ohio housewife went on the flight of a lifetime and became the first woman to fly around the world solo. Jerrie Mock was not your ordinary housewife. Flying her single engine Cessna 180, the "Spirit of Columbus", Mock made her world trip alone in just 29 days. She is an inspiration to pilots and go-getters, like ourselves, everywhere.

  • National Poetry Day

    Impressions of a Pilot  Flight is freedom in its purest form, To dance with the clouds which follow a storm;  To roll and glide, to wheel and spin, To feel the joy that swells within;  To leave the earth with its troubles and fly, And know the warmth of a clear spring sky;  Then back to earth at the end of a day, Released from the tensions which melted away.  Should my end come while I am in flight, Whether brightest day or darkest night;  Spare me your pity and shrug off the pain, Secure in the knowledge that I'd do it again;  For each of us is created to die, And within me I know, I was born to fly.  — Gary Claud Stokor Impressions of a Pilot— Gary Claud Stokor

  • WCW: Patty Wagstaff

    A champion, teacher, sportsman, and performer, Patty Wagstaff is a modern day inspiration to pilots everywhere. With a family history involved in the skies, Wagstaff took to the air like a bird.

    Taking the controls of her father’s DC-6 at ten years old with him by her side, her eyes were opened to the incredible feeling of flying. Starting her affair with airplanes with bush flying, Wagstaff’s first airplane she was chartering crashed on take off. Determined to not let the experience get in her way to the skies, she hired friend and future husband, Bob, to travel with her in his Cessna 185 floatplane.

    That was just the beginning. Learning and training to fly everything from WWII fighter planes to jets to helicopters, Wagstaff conquered any aircraft that came her way. Years of training, experience and determination led to earning a spot in the US Aerobatic Team by 1985.

    A six-time recipient of the “First Lady of Aerobatics” Betty Skelton Award, a recipient of the “Sword of Excellence” Airshow Industry Award, and the “Bill Barber Award for Showmanship” are a few of Wagstaff’s proudest achievements. In 2004 she was inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame and was recently awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Air Force Association.

    When she is not training or flying in Airshows and competitions, Wagstaff works as a stunt pilot and aerial coordinator for TV and film. Never having enough of the sky, Patty decided to use her skills and training to help others in more ways than just entertainment. For over ten years, she has traveled to East Africa to train Kenya Wildlife Service pilots in bush, recurrency and aerobatic training. Those pilots go on to protect Kenya’s natural resources, elephants and rhinos. Dedicated to helping other, for three years she flew for the Cal Fire as an Air Attack pilot to help keep California safe from fires.

    Continuing her passion for flying, Wagstaff has opened an aerobatic school in St. Augustine, Florida. At the “Patty Wagstaff Aerobatic School” she trains pilots to fly with safety and confidence. When she isn’t teaching others the joys of flight, she is off traveling around the world and enjoying the little things in life. Patty Wagstaff is a true pilot at heart and an American inspiration.
