And the #Swag Just Keeps on Comin' for Oshbash

The generosity of the aviation family towards Airplanista's #Oshbash event at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is explosive...I am adding NEW DOOR PRIZES all the time right now.

This is the the first of many posts over the July 4th holiday weekend that will explain just what some lucky #avgeeks might win as #swag when they attend the GA Power Collective on Tuesday, July 29th, 5:30PM - 7:30PM at the EAA Press Tent.

Two #avgeeks will each win a pair of headset-friendly Flying Eyes sunglasses, each valued at $169. These are the current frame design, and owner Dean Siracusa said the winners can choose to exchange their Flying Eyes for the updated, latest, greatest new design that is coming out very soon after Oshkosh.

"Flying Eyes were invented out of a passion for flying," Siracusa said, "and I'm thrilled to support Oshbash & the GA Power Collective because I believe in the goal of growing general aviation and using the power of social media and all our combined imaginations toward that goal." Here's a little bit about this product:
Patented Flying Eyes Sunglasses are designed to be comfortable with an aviation headset. The non-elastic strap on Flying Eyes is soft and thin, so there is no pressure or pain under a headset even after a long day of flying. And thanks to a better seal between the headset and the wearer's head, noise-canceling headsets will be quieter. No more noise leaks! The removable strap is interchangeable with the included standard temples for outside-the-cockpit wear. Optically-correct, distortion-free, non-polarized neutral gray, medium tinted, shatter-resistant polycarbonate lenses allow accurate perception of color charts and instruments. They are dark enough to remove glare from the brightest and haziest days, but not too dark to see easily in the cockpit. The new gradient lens option subtly compensates for lower-light levels in the cockpit while still reducing outside glare. Flying Eyes sunglasses offer UV400 sun protection, the best UV protection available, because pilots flying at higher altitudes have increased exposure to harmful UV radiation from the sun. The Resilamide™ frame is made from advanced polymers that is up to 20% lighter than other plastics and yet far more durable. Its extreme flexibility, durability and light weight make it the perfect material for comfort in everyday wear. It's also resistant to high temperatures and blocks fading UV exposure.
The people who make and sell Flying Eyes are just wonderful aviators, and they deserve our support. They have launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the manufacturing of the new, improved frames, please go take a look. They think growing aviation is a good thing...and by throwing down with a $338 donation, they are putting their money behind the idea of the collaborative effort we will be discussing at #Oshbash.

If you believe in the notion that pilots help other pilots...that's just the way we roll...go throw down a little at their Indiegogo page.

* Airplanista gets no part of these shirt sales, every dime goes to a very hard-working aviation small business.
