For the first few years of my flying time I was using a "swag bag" from work little more then a gym bag that was able to hold a knee bored and my David Clarks. I received my lift as a gift and instantly fell in love with the thing. People are saying its small but I can fit a Ipad mini 4, Ipad knee board my giant phone, two write in the rain note books plus flash light and fuel strainer in it. It works great my only thing is trying to figure out where I want to put everything and what goes where. Trial and error is going to be the big judge for this bag as far as where I have placed everything for this mission. But for quick missions or a minamilistic approach to flying it is a wonderful bagSeptember 28, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat little flight bag.... but it is little!First of all Ill start out buy saying that I tend to lean towards the statement "you can never be too prepared" so I bought this bag due to the numerous reviews that seemed pretty positive. What I wasn't expecting is the size is roughly the same as two Zulu 3 headset bags which creates a small problem, no pun intended. I was able to fit 1 Zulu 3 headset, 1 ASA log book and E6B (the plotter was too long), 1 ipad mini with kneeboard, 1 Icom A25N with spare battery pack. My preflight tools would not fit and my portable ADS-B device would not fit leaving no room to expand or grow as experience and needs do. For a comparable price you could obtain much larger bags with more room to fit more gear that may or may not be needed. The benefit is that this bag will not go to waste as my daughter is starting flight training in a few months and I believe this will be a great first flight bag for her.
Pros: Small, lightweight, great for students, good build materials and durable.
Cons: Small, No room to grow.June 7, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAwesome bagI would recommend this bag to anyone in GA. It looks great and well built. I got my name out on it and it looks great.

7 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesSmall but roomyVery good bag with plenty of room without pushing you out of the cockpit. I fly a Citation III and this bag holds everything I need from extra chargers, towels to a handheld radio and still fits between the yolk and my seat! It looks very durable and reliable but too soon to tell.April 22, 2019Purchased

8 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value3 / 5Amazing bag!Not the typical huge flight bag that you end up filling with crap you hardly use. Extremely durable and yet light and portable.March 28, 2019Purchased
9 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesThe ONEI have gone through a lot of flight bags over the years (student bag from Sportys, Brightline, canvas tool bags, backpack, messenger bag - and on and on). This iPad bag is it! It's light and compact, but it holds so much. Also, it forces me to leave the plane with everything organized. I can't just throw everything in and sort it out later. Everything has its place, and it's all logical and easy to get to. No velcro anywhere.March 25, 2019Would You Recommend?NoI'm certain this would be great little bag and mean a further reduction in what I'd have to hall around - a lot of us know that flying for an airline we have to carry to much crap even now with the downsized bag needs due to the electronic flight bag revolution...BUT this bag just screams "GA" with its bright colors and cheesy logos making it a no-go for carriage in the 121 world.March 23, 2019Response from Sporty's Pilot ShopThank you for the review. You asked and they listened. Check out the new pro version of the Flight Outfitters Lift bag. It is part number 10285A.April 9, 2019Doug RDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesCompact and PracticalSmaller than I expected despite the measurements clearly in the product description. Amazingly the compact bag holds everything I had hoped it to. It organizes everything and the orange interior makes everything visible. Got rid of my huge heavy flight bag that I bought from Sportys 20+ years ago when charts, calculators, and portable GPS’s took up a lot of space. Definitely a flight bag for today’s modern pilot.January 30, 2019Purchased

One review said no you said yes.BEST ANSWER: Yes, The iPad Pro will fit inside of this case.Where is the logo and text displayed and in what color? Is there a sample picture of a helicopter logo?BEST ANSWER: Don't have a picture for you but I got an airplane symbol and 2 lines of text (name and then phone number underneath). If you reference the product picture it shows the bag with a vfr sectional poking out of a pocket. That is the front side of the bag. The symbol goes about .5-1" below the slot for the sectional and about a half inch below whatever symbol you choose are the text lines. It is white/silver in color and looks very nice.Will it hold the new iPad Pro 9.7"?Flight Outfitters Lift BagBEST ANSWER: Yes.Will it hold 2 headsets?BEST ANSWER: Two ultra-low profile headsets ... big *maybe* (where will your iPad go??). Two standard size, passive, David Clarks ... probably not. Get a low-cost headset-only bag and clip it to the carry handles with a carabiner. When you have a pax, unclip it, and give it to them to carry themselves d*_*bHow does this differ from the "Pro" version?BEST ANSWER: Just the color on the exterior - the rest is the same.Can we embroid custom logos?BEST ANSWER: Yes, we can do custom logos.
