L004670 WINTER FLIGHT UNIFORM. (Fliegerschutzanzug)

BACKGROUND: Development of protective flight uniforms and equipment began with the advent of military aircraft in WWI and continued on into the Weimar and the Third Reich eras, resulting in three distinct one-piece combination pattern flight suits being approved before WWII and worn for the duration of the war. Regulations of July 4TH 1940 and April 24TH 1941 introduced two piece protective flight suits for fighter pilots designed to increase the wearers mobility and not be as restrictive in the close confines of a cockpit. The two piece flight suits consist of separate jacket and pants and was commonly referred to as the "Kanalanzug", (Channel Uniform).

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Very nice matched set in white leather. Brown wool is all complete with the exception of a few missing sections on the inside of the jacket. Nice Bulgarian makers labels. All zippers and snaps still look to function. Jacket is roughly a size 40" chest. Trousers are a 32" waist. Shows the expected period use and wear but overall nice condition.
