This is the classic bag that started it all. This modern version of the Original Flight Gear bag is modeled after our 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 as a change of clothes. Perfect for the pilot who has more to carry, or needs extra space to tuck in last minute gear for an overnight trip....

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.
