Electronic flight bags have revolutionized the way we fly. A mere 15 years ago, most pilots were carrying massive catalog cases weighing over 50lbs. with every chart available. Since the gear pilots carry has drastically changed, so have the bags we use to carry it.

Designed for the iPad Pilot
The Flight Gear iPad Bag was specifically designed for the iPad pilot, with lots of pockets for organization and custom pockets for protecting important electronics. The smaller footprint is perfect for stowing on the floor between the front two seats of the Cessna. With a heavy duty carrying handle and padded, no-slip shoulder strap, the Flight Gear HP iPad Bag will stand up to the rigors of daily flight training abuse.
Plenty of external pockets protect important gear and keep it close at hand. A 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. A flashlight/fuel tester pocket on each side of the iPad pocket provides quick access to these frequently used items. A small water bottle pocket and two pen pockets complete the sides of the bag.
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. The front panel can even be embroidered with your name, N-number, or silhouette of your aircraft for an additional $9.95.
The padded iPad pocket is generously sized to fit an iPad and a small kneeboard. A special hole in the side of the pocket allows access for a charging cable to keep your iPad battery topped off from a backup battery brick in the main pocket (sold separately).
The main pocket measures a cavernous 5” deep by 11” tall by 9” wide. A unique headset hanger allows you to suspend your headset from the top of the bag rather than let it get beat up at the bottom. Four elastic loops on the side of the compartment hold AA batteries for quick replacement. Two side mesh pockets are perfect for backup battery bricks or cleaning wipes, and two zippered mesh pockets on the inside front flap are great for organizing cables. A gusseted front flap allows the main pocket to open without falling all the way to the floor of your cockpit.
A unique Gear Mod wall is found at the back of the main pocket. This wall was specifically designed with a soft, velvet-like material. This is perfect for attaching Gear Mods, independent pockets that attach with hook and loop fasteners and make it easy to further customize your Flight Gear bag. Need an extra pocket for a backup battery? There’s a Gear Mod for that.
The Flight Gear Difference
The small details are where this bag really shines. Thick plastic hardware allows the bag to be sturdy, yet lightweight. The unique crosshatch fabric is ripstop and moisture resistant. While you can’t go deep sea diving with it, you can run from the plane to the FBO in the rain. Small loops are found underneath the carrying handle and are perfect for hanging sunglasses or attaching gear with carabiners. The high visibility interior keeps small items from getting lost in the dark corners of your bag.
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 six models 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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Sporty’s offers optional custom embroidery on all Flight Gear bags, perfect for initials, names, or N-numbers for an additional $9.95. We can make your bag distinctively yours.
Sizing - which bag works for you
Are you a student pilot? Weekend warrior or professional pilot? Size matters when it comes to your flight bag. The Tailwind Backpack is perfect for the pilot who has more to carry. Here's how it compares to the rest of the Flight Gear line.
