Cooper A-2 Flying Jacket The Cooper A-2 (flight jacket or flying jacket) is a leather jacket, (Goat Skin) made by Cooper Sportswear, worn by United States Army Air Forces and was re-introduced by the military just prior to Operation Desert Shield, and has been in service ever since. Key features of a military-specification jacket (as opposed to a civilian version) are one-piece back (some knock-off jackets have a seam across the shoulder blades; this seam causes discomfort during long flights in a confined position) and lack of side-entry hand-warmer pockets under the large snap-down patch pockets (apparently, the military designers did not want their pilots to be seen standing around with their hands in their pockets. Cooper Sportswear ceased production in the late 90's and retailer inventories were exhausted some time afterwards. Even though the A-2 is still a military-requisitioned item and contracts have been awarded to other USA suppliers using the A-2 pattern, the Cooper label is considered collectible and highly sought after by World War II re-enactors and historians. A vintage Cooper A-2 in excellent condition can be worth more than the market rate of a new-build A-2 from a current manufacturer. Jacket is in excellent condition, just the usual minor scuffing to the out shell, knits are in excellent condition, no rips or tears, zipper works fine. This is a lovely A-2 jacket, in a good size 46" chest. 26" from the collar to the bottom of the waistband, and 26" from the shoulder to the cuff edge. cotton liner again is in excellent condition, no rips or tears.

Cooper G-1 U.S. Navy Pilots Jacket The "G-1" military flight jacket is the commonly accepted name for the fur-lined-collar World War II-era flight jacket of the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. The G-1 remains a current uniform-issue item in naval aviation for officer and enlisted aviation personnel on flying status in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Coast Guard. More technically, the jacket may be considered the U.S. Military flight jacket developed in 1947 and used in the Korean War, since the term "G-1" was not used as a label for this fur-collared military-issued jacket until after World War II. However, the term "G-1" has come to be used for this style of naval leather flight jacket. Prior to the end of World War II, and starting in 1940 when it was officially named by the U.S. Navy, the jacket had the military spec number of M-422. This jacket is in excellent condition, the goat skin shell has the usual worn appearance overall, but no rips or tears, the knits are in excellent condition, showing very little wear, the heavy duty zipper works fine, and has it's "paper clip" puller in place with goat skin thong, all buttons are intact, inside map pocket press stud works fine, and the "satin" cotton lining is clean, odour free, with no rips or tears.

The cap is a good size 7:3/8" . The Civil Air Patrol was conceived in the late 1930s by aviation advocate Gill Robb Wilson, who foresaw general aviation's potential to supplement America's military operations. With the help of New York Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia, in his capacity as then-Director of the Office of Civilian Defence, CAP was created with Administrative Order 9, signed by LaGuardia on 1 December 1941 and published 8 December 1941. The Civil Air Patrol had 90 days to prove themselves to Congress. Major General John F. Curry was appointed as the first national commander. Texas oilman David Harold Byrd was a co-founder of CAP. During World War II, CAP was seen as a way to use America's civilian aviation resources to aid the war effort instead of grounding them. The organization assumed many missions including anti-submarine patrol and warfare, border patrols, and courier services.
