American Optical are a true heritage brand for all American pilots. American Optical sunglasses have been worn by pilots serving in the forces since 1900. Innovators at the forefront of pilot sunglasses, American Optical remain one of the most popular choices of eyewear for pilots all over the world - and even out of this world! American Optical sunglasses were the first sunglass to land on the moon in 1969 with Neil Armstrong and his crew. From Top Gun to Easy Rider, American Optical aviators have been trendsetters in the sky and on the silver screen for years.
American Optical aviators are specially designed for optical performance in difficult conditions, comfort for long periods of wear, and classic styling that remains timeless. We offer a wide selection of American Optical sunglasses here at Flightstore, but if you’re looking for a different style you may find the perfect pair in our full collection of pilot sunglasses, part of our pilot clothing collection at Flightstore.
