Flight jackets are the bomber style jackets that were worn by servicemen in the air force. They were originally developed to keep pilots warm as they flew high the air, but over the years they have very popular and even fashionable. The way you wash your flight jacket depends on when it was made. Flight jackets made today are usually made from a nylon-cotton blend, whereas older or vintage flight jackets can be made with wool, fur or shearling.
