There comes a point in flight training when students start to look at gauges instead of looking outside the aircraft. Many instructors resolve to put a sectional chart over all the instruments in an effort to get students to look outside during the maneuver. VFR Training Goggles obstruct the panel and only allow the student to look outside the aircraft. Like IFR goggles but or VFR maneuvers!

Great for my Cirrus!
Works wonders on my Cirrus as I can still easily see the handle to pull the chute. Landing has never been easier!

Also good for driving into the rising or setting sun!
Hate the morning commute to the airport with the sun coming up and I'm hung over from too much alcohol consumption from a couple of hours ago and I have to fly as soon as I get to the airport. Problem is, these work so well blocking that terrible headache causing (can't be the booze) sun in the face morning commute, that apparently I missed the exit for the airport. It's now another morning and I'm on the road again with the sun in my eyes, but man, these glasses block the sun. I can't see the GPS but sense I'm heading the wrong direction as this is day 2 and I still can't find my airport. Guess I better call in sick again....

Perfect for instrument check rides.
I was having a horrible time passing my instrument check ride. After 3 fails, I broke down and got these for my DPE. He was hesitant at first but I assured him that if I had any questions during the checkride, I'd say something and he could take them off. The entire flight went perfect. I told him how dead on my flying was, he said it looked great from what he could see. Well worth it.

Multipurpose VFR and IFR
As a X11 Sim Pilot finally trying to fly a real airplane I like looking at screens. These have helped me not get caught trying to fly by the PFD and MFD like my sim. They are perfect to make me look up and out the real simulator windows. Crashing now doesn't let me respawn in Hawaii or DFW over and over. I plan on using these upside down once my PPL is done for my IFR training. They really are good for most of your training.

Not for Open Cockpit
These do not work well for open air cockpit flying in wet weather. Tipping your head to let the water out defeats the purpose!

Cirrus Vision Correction Device
These are the perfect gift for every Cirrus or other Garmin-obsessed pilot you know! Let them know you care about them and their passengers this holiday season. I'm certain they will appreciate it!

Great for Gulfstream pilots!
As a veteran Gulfstream pilot, I've spent decades looking down my nose at those who don't fly and those who fly anything other than a Gulfstream. There has always been an awkwardness with these "normies" who wish to make eye contact with me. Now that I have these glasses, I can now avoid these darting glances and keep on track in my awesome world.
As a side note, these glasses would be that much more awesome if they would come with a mirrored lens.

They work a little too well
These things have pretty much ruined my entire weekend. I was flying with them and the entire flight was a mess. I couldn't locate the trim wheel. I couldn't find the flaps or the gear switch so I had a gear up going really fast. Once the plane came to a stop, I was unable to locate my keys. It put me in a crap mood. I forgot to take them off and when I got out of the plane, I kicked the back of the wing with my shin and I was forced to make eye contact with all of the young ladies at the FBO. I am not sure who was more confused by that, them or me. Lucky for me, I had a spare set of car keys and I managed to drive home by feel. I got home and had to pee so bad but still had the damn things on. The bathroom is soaked and it needs to be cleaned but My wife is really short so I have no idea where she is. I may not even be in the right house. What a mess.
