    The Vandy MA-1 Flight Jacket is a patched-up bomber done in partnership with the Warrior Flight Team and Playboy Enterprises. All proceeds from the jackets sales benefits the work of the Warrior Flight Team, who helps wounded veterans with scholarships, job training and placement. The team also performs at air shows and does flyovers for fallen soldiers' funnerals.

    The Vandy MA-1 takes our Slim-Fit MA-1 Flight Jacket and turns it into a limited-edition piece with the addition of patches paying tribute to the U.S. Navy’s Air Test and Evaluation Squadrons (VX-4, VX-5 and VX-9). The squadrons had an bunny mascot painted on the tails of their F-4 Phantom II jets and when Playboy Enterprises saw this they offered up the use of their official Bunny logo. The Warrior Flight Team flies L-39 jets called the Vandy-1 that have the same Playboy Bunny Logo in honor of the Navy squadrons.

    Product History

    Introduced by the mid-1950s, the MA-1 became the flight jacket of U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots and ground crew. Designed for use in temperatures of 14-50 degrees F, the MA-1 had a 100% wool knit collar, waistband and cuffs. The MA-1 discarded the mouton fur collar of its predecessor, the B-15, because it interfered with the parachute harness worn by aviators. Other features of the jacket included a tab that the oxygen mask was clipped to, tabs to hold the headset wires in place and the original U.S. Air Force decal. These features were eventually removed from the flight jacket as it was adopted by other branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and equipment for pilots changed. An addition to the jacket in 1960 was the reversibility to show off an Indian Orange lining. The reason being if a plane crashed, the pilot could reverse the jacket to the orange side to signal rescue personnel. Alpha Industries' first government contract for the MA-1 was awarded in 1963. We started producing the MA-1 flight jacket for the civilian population in the 1970s. Black was added to the military sage green requirement. The jacket has evolved over the years but it is still one of our top sellers and today we produce many variations on this classic flight jacket.
