Pilots have always been known as innovators, and pilot Dean Siracusa is no different with his FlyingEyes Sunglasses. Most pilots flying piston powered aircraft wear headsets, and there is always a problem with noise in the cockpit. FlyingEyes sunglasses were invented to solve that problem by providing a comfortable pair of sunglasses that not only kept noise out but kept ears and your head comfortable at the same time. While not inexpensive, these new sunglasses combine the best in both comfort and protection. Dean was kind enough to send me a pair, and I must admit that it is a really nice product all of the way from the packaging to the comfort of the FlyingEyes sunglasses themselves.
Unique New DesignWith the unique strap system that wraps around your head keeping them not only in place but the smooth thin straps make a much better seal between you ear and your aviation headset. But for those who prefer the company provides a set of skull temples which can quickly and easily be attached to the sunglasses when you prefer not to have a strap around your head.
Invented By Meyers 200 Owner/PilotIt is clear that Dean Siracusa spent a great deal of time thinking about the design and experimenting with various configurations before arriving at the modern design of the FlyingEyes sunglasses. Pilots are always interested in new inventions which improve their flying experience, and these new sunglasses certainly meet that requirement!
