    Thom Richard P-40 Thom Richard P-40

    Atlanta GA, September 21-25, 2016, Cockpit USA, and the American Airpower museum had the honor of participating in the 75th Anniversary commemoration of the American Volunteer Group (AVG). Two of the three surviving members of the AVG were in attendance, and five P-40’s from around the country gathered to honor the group. With the help of Sponsors Cockpit USA, The American Airpower Museum was able to send their P-40 “Jacky C” from its base In Farmingdale N.Y. to Peachtree DeKalb airport in Georgia.

    Cockpit USA has made it part of it’s core mission to honor the Americans who volunteered to assist China during WWII. Their 23rd Fighter Group Jacket is a tribute to the group deigned to be as close to the original jackets used as possible. Additional Jacket designs have also been used as a way to continue to educate people on the groups fascinating history.

  • 23rd Fighter Group Patch by Cockpit USA

    Cockpit USA's handmade Flying Tiger Patches

    Cockpit USA's handmade Flying Tiger Patches

    The U.S. Army Air Force 23rd Fighter Group, the successor unit to the 1st American Volunteer Group – otherwise known as “The Flying Tigers”, was activated on July 4, 1942, when the AVG group was absorbed by the U.S. Army. Known for defending China against the Japanese during WWII in their P-40 fighter planes, these brave pilots gave hope to the American people in defeating the Japanese during these campaigns overseas. The insignia of the 23rd Fighter Group features a tiger with wings and a lightning bolt going down the center of a shield. These patches were worn proudly by pilots and aircrew alike, indicating their corresponding groups or squadrons.

    Cockpit USA’s dedication to making authentic items spares no expense in making sure every detail is correct. Our “23rd Fighter Group” Patch, as seen on our Flying Tigers 23rd Fighter Group Jacket, is handmade according to the traditional way it was crafted during the 1940s. The leather is hand-printed and die cut. Each patch is then inspected and finalized by an artist who hand paints any remaining details. Every detail is important in ensuring each jacket we design and produce, is authentic and as handsome as the original.
