    About Flying Eyes

    “Classic aviator sunglasses are one of the iconic symbols that defines a pilot,” said Dean Siracusa, president and founder of Flying Eyes. “…well, they used to.”

    Even though aviator sunglasses look stylish, and maintain that persona, most pilots will tell you that, “wearing a modern headset with traditional aviators can become extremely painful.”

    So, why is there a disconnect between a pilot’s gear and their iconic eyewear?

    Aviator style sunglasses were designed in the 1930s, and it wasn’t until the 1970s that pilots began wearing headsets designed to block out ambient flight noise. Today’s modern headsets are engineered for a very specific purpose. Wearing “regular” aviators or other common sunglasses with an active noise reduction headset creates discomfort, and prevents proper function.

    Flying Eyes was founded to design and engineer the world’s lightest, most comfortable aviator sunglasses. By redesigning the temples, Flying Eyes has created eyewear with thin temples that improve fit and comfort while wearing noise-canceling headsets.

    “Our temples are made from Resilamide™, a patented, flexible polymer originally designed for the aerospace industry,” said Siracusa. “The glasses fit perfectly with any helmet or headset, with minimal pressure or irritation to the sides of the head.”

    With the success of Flying Eyes in the aviation community, Siracusa has brought his sunglasses into the motorcycle and motorsports niches with similar responses. Customers of Flying Eyes constantly say these are the most comfortable sunglasses they’ve experienced.

    Today, Flying Eyes are sold throughout the world in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, and China.

    With a year over year increase in US motorcycle sales, and more people wearing over-ear headphones than ever before, Flying Eyes is in front of a very big shift in the sunglasses market, as more people look for comfort around their ears as much as protection for their eyes. In addition to the updated aviators, Flying Eyes continues to expand their frame styles with new innovations including updated beach frames, sport frames, readers, and protective wear.
