This is the classic bag that started it all. This modern version of the Original Flight Gear bag is modeled after Sporty's very first bag from over 30 years ago. This design is the largest in the Flight Gear line, and has plenty of room for gear as well being compatible with the Flight Gear accessories. Perfect for the pilot who has more to carry, or needs extra space to tuck in last minute gear for an overnight trip.
An extra large headset pocket is on the end of the Original Flight Gear Bag, and is large enough to fit most aviation headsets—even with a case. The outside of the headset pocket has a small, flat pocket for storing a fuel tester or flashlight. The back of the bag has a pass-thru slot for slipping the bag over the handles rolling luggage.
The opposite side of the bag features two custom designed pockets for important pilot gear: an aviation radio and a portable weather receiver. The transceiver pocket has an hourglass-shaped flap, allowing you to keep the antenna on your radio. When not in use, the antenna can be stowed in a special sleeve on the inside the transceiver pocket. The second pocket is padded and sized for storing an ADS-B receiver or small GPS
An organizer pocket on the front of the bag is great for pens, business cards, logbooks, and more. An integrated key clip helps to keep your keys from getting lost and a zipper pocket keeps important $100 hotdog menus safely stowed. This front pocket has provisions (known as an embroidery window) for personalizing your bag with optional embroidery.
The massive main compartment is the focal point for this bag. A padded iPad pocket allows quick access to your most important accessory. Two pockets on the sidewalls keep all your charging cables organized. The top flap closes with dual, heavy-duty #10 zippers, and a padded carry handle is sure to stand up to the rigors of flight training.
The Original Flight Gear Bag provides maximum carrying capacity. Measures 20” l x 12” w x 11” h overall.
Sporty’s Flight Gear bags have set the standard in aviation for nearly three decades. With pilot-friendly designs and high-quality craftsmanship, tens of thousands of pilots have trusted Flight Gear to protect and organize their gear, from first lesson to airline cockpit.
But we’re never satisfied, so we’re always looking to improve our products. After all, we have the best test pilots in the world: you, our customer. Thousands of pilot reports, good and bad, have been painstakingly reviewed to find the features most wanted in a flight bag.
The result is our latest generation of Flight Gear bags, brand new for 2021. Each of these bags represents the ultimate combination of rugged construction, thoughtful design, and affordable prices. You can pay more, but you won’t find a better flight bag.
What good is a bag if it doesn’t last? There are few things more annoying than a broken zipper or a ripped seam, which is why we work directly with the factory to ensure these bags will meet or exceed the high expectations of pilots everywhere. Reinforced handles, non-slip shoulder straps, quick-grab zipper pulls, padded iPad pockets, and strengthened hardware make Sporty’s Flight Gear bags ideal for any mission.
While durability is extremely important, pilots always stress about weight. These new bags needed to be lightweight, but without sacrificing quality. We found the perfect balance of lighter fabric and hardware, without skimping on the zippers or stitching. The result is the lightest line of bags we’ve ever produced, because useful load is for passengers and fuel, not flight bags.
Aviation has changed drastically in the last 10 years—bags designed to carry 40 pounds of paper charts have given way to smaller, smarter bags for electronics. Sporty’s latest generation of Flight Gear bags feature custom pockets for storing and protecting headsets and iPads, not Jepp binders. We also added lots of organization for cables and other small gear, so important tools don’t get lost.
High Visibility Interior
A spacious bag won’t help you stay organized if you can’t find your gear. Flight Gear bags feature high visibility interiors, so your pilot supplies won’t be hiding in a dark corner when you really need them.
Every pilot has their own list of must-have items for flying, so flight bags must be customizable. We’ve accomplished this goal with a line of optional accessory pockets, called Gear Mods, that can be moved from one bag to another. After all, searching for a charging cable and backup battery pack can be a real pain in a tight cockpit.
