  • Airmen chart new path for female-specific flight equipment

    The Air Force is working to redesign the gear used by female pilots across the force after facing challenges with current flight equipment. The majority of the equipment currently worn by pilots was built off anthropometric data from the 1960s, a time when only men were in aviator roles. Part of the strategy to correct the uniform problem was to take part in several collaborative Female Flight Equipment Workshops at AFWERX Vegas. Female Airmen stationed across the globe traveled to the innovation hub and attended the workshops to explore areas of opportunity and come up with proposed solutions.
