5 Million Pilots Can't be wrong - The Great American Sunglass Made in USA
History of Aviator Sunglasses Team Extreme Eyewear
Long considered a fashion statement, aviator sunglasses have a surprising history that dates back to World War II. This particular accessory item is well recognized in every arena from the well-known, Hollywood rich and famous to aircraft personnel and the average Joe looking for a little sun protection. In fact, they are so well recognized as fashion gear that no one under the age of 40 would suspect that they actually served as a critical piece of protective equipment for WW2, Korea, Vietnam and pilots during a critical time in our country’s history. The AO Original Pilot Sunglass was known as Mil spec 25982 FG 58
Extreme Eyewear now offers aviator sunglasses from American Optical, including the renowned, genuine US Military-issue Original Pilot Sunglass! 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 Sunglass, was produced for the US Military to provide maximum protection, optical performance and comfort. More than 40 years have passed and the Original Pilot Sunglass is still the preferred aviator sunglass of all US Military branches.
In fact, the Original Pilot Sunglass was honored to be the first ever sunglass 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 Sunglass, US Wings offers a choice selection of other high performance American Optical models. All made in the USA!
