How do you make the best headset in aviation even better? By focusing on what matters. The new Bose A30 offers performance you’ll appreciate on every flight, including improved comfort, quiet, clarity, and durability.

The TOCSIN 4 Cockpit Monitor is smart upgrade to our best-selling carbon monoxide detector. It combines a rugged design and reliability with advanced sensor resolution, plus three different alert modes (red flashing lights, vibrating, and a loud audio alarm). Large backlit LCD screen displays CO level in parts per million (ppm).
Hydration is critical on long cross-country flights, but so is making sure you don’t exceed your bladder’s endurance before shutting down the aircraft. The Flight Gear Water Bottle is a great option to help with the hydration part (no comment on the second part). Its slim design makes it an easy complement to a flight bag or cup holder. A silicon strap allows a carabiner connection to allow ease of stowage.

In the modern era when pilots fly with electronic flight bags (EFBs), full-size kneeboards capable of holding approach plates are no longer necessary. However, writing with your finger on a touch screen can be messy and difficult to read on sunny flight decks. The AeroPad is a stealthy, ergonomic kneeboard for copying clearances, weather reports, and other simple notes.
Inspired by the effortless soaring of birds, humans have taken to wing as the safest, fastest, and most enjoyable way to travel. An Illustrated Guide to Flying explains the principles and practice of flying with concise critical facts, supported with prolific illustrations and photographs, covering basic flight maneuvers, aircraft engines and flight instruments, navigation, weather, types of aircraft, traffic control, flight rules, and more. A surprisingly fun and comprehensive book in a small size.

Flying with oxygen systems can be uncomfortable: you either have a big, bulky mask covering over half your face, or oxygen tubes running around your head. The Boomula makes using oxygen in the cockpit easy. Simply replace the cannula of your existing SkyOx or Aerox system and enjoy a more comfortable oxygen experience.
