  • Made In USA: Louisville Golf Club Company


    When we're not hiking, flying in the skies or camping in the country side, we at Cockpit USA like to venture out on golfing expeditions using only US made equipment. Established in 1974 by the late Elmore Just, the Louisville Golf Company is a pioneering force in the use of persimmon wood for the manufacture of golf clubs. After extensive research and development, the Kentucky based golf specialists found the weight, hardness and rebound characteristics of persimmon not only made it ideal for making clubs, but also superior to metal 'woods' in terms of precision.  The hand crafted clubs can be tailor made for individual golfers and engraved for an added personal touch. Alongside their high quality contemporary equipment, Louisville Golf Club Co. also manufacturer the world's finest, fully useable Hickory-shafted golf clubs for a golfing experience reminiscent of the late 19th and 20th century era. Of course, to go with your American made clubs should be an American made jacket such as the light weight and handsome Cockpit USA All Cotton '100 Mission' jacket.

  • American Air Power Museum Educational Program

    It was on April 4, 1945 that American army units discovered and liberated the first slave labor camp at Ohrdruf, in Thuringia, Germany. In the following week, American forces went on to free the camps at Buchenwald, near Weimar, and the V2 rocket slave-labor camp at Nordhausen in the Harz Mountains. On the 67th anniversary of the liberation of these camps, the American Air Power Museum, of which Cockpit USA are proud sponsors, will host a number of US armored vehicles, similar to those that broke down the gates to free the Holocaust survivors. The exhibit is part of an educational program which will be held at the museum next month through the sponsorship of Morrell Caterers. Mauthausen concentration camp survivors Thea and Jack Rumstein and students from the surrounding areas will gather for the program in order to maintain the story of Holocaust and of the liberation.

  • Movie Monday: The English Patient


    Set in the throes and aftermath of WWII, The English Patient is a multilayered romantic tale of love, loss and the wielding force of fate. Based on a novel of the same name by Michael Ondaatje, the movie stars Ralph Fiennes as Count Laszlo de Almásy, a critically burned man being nursed back to health by the ever altruistic Hana, played by Juliette Binoche. Shrouded in mystery, the story of the Count is unraveled through flashbacks to his past, revealing a passionate but fateful love affair and how he came to be an invalid. Winner of nine Academy Awards, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA, the film's triumphs are testament to its cinematic genius. Taken by the heart warming story line and dazzled by the costumes, we at Cockpit USA recommend  The English Patient as the perfect antidote for an uncharacteristically cold spring evening!

  • Friday Feast: Hangar One Steakhouse

  • See America: Route 1


    While summer may bring cloudless skies, autumn a golden palette of colors and winter festive cheer, spring is truly the season of new beginnings. What better way to see the blossoming trees and blooming landscape with a roadtrip across the diverse Route 1 terrain? The picturesque route spans the outer edge of Maine, traversing its rocky coastline, low lying mountains and scenic seaside sights. Setting off at the southernmost point of Route 1, the road ahead holds Kittery, a haven of fashion outlets for a generous dose of retail therapy, then on to Portland, the 'Foodiest Small Town of America' as awarded by Bon Appétit magazine, for Maine's famous culinary offerings. Veering north, the road passes through Danforth, home to the breathtaking 'million dollar view' of East Grand Lake, the saltwater falls of West Pembroke and continuing on the weeklong journey, the history of Maine unveils itself in the small towns and villages which line the coastal route. National parks, landmark forts, lighthouses and antique shops provide a feast for the eyes while Maine's famed seafood restaurants provide one for the belly! By far the most exciting way to see the best Maine has to offer, Route 1 is a path peppered with unforgettable wonders. As the renowned novelist Jack Kerouac once wrote, 'the road is life', so hit Route 1 for an unforgettable, all-American adventure!

  • The Quest for Amelia

    With two of our women's leathers named in her honor, this week's news of the potential solving of Amelia Earhart's mystery garnered much interest at Cockpit USA headquarters. 

    After embarking on a pioneering mission to become the first woman to fly around the world, the first lady of skies, along with her navigator Fred Noonan went missing on July 2, 1937. Recognised as a celebrity in the aviation world, news of Earhart's disappearance sent waves of shock and sadness all over the country. Now, new analysis of a photograph of what may be the wreckage of Earhart's plane may help to remove the shroud of mystery surrounding the final events in her life. With support from the U.S. the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery will begin an expedition to the remote island of Nikumaroro in Kiribati in an attempt to piece together what became of America's greatest femaile aviation pioneer. It is reported Discovery channel will film the trip for a special documentary, so keep your eyes peeled... It seems the final chapter in Amelia Earhart's life is yet to be closed.
