As they say, now that Spring is right around the corner sunshine is sure to follow. And that brings us to the issue of protecting your eyes. A number of years ago the FAA issued an interesting pdf file called "Sunglasses for Pilots: Beyond the Image" which detailed the effects of bright sunlight on pilot's vision.
The document starts with the statement that "Sunglasses help safeguard a pilot's most important sensory asset - vision." So I prepared a little video which you can see below which details why sunglasses are important, what kind of sunglasses are required, and the best place to get them. Enjoy! You will see that we sell these very same sunglasses here; take a look for yourself here. Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
