Product Features

Introduced by the mid-1950s, the MA-1 became the flight jacket of U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots and ground crew. 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. 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. The MA-1 BLOOD CHIT jacket is one of a kind to be worn with pride. Alpha's MA-1 flight jacket with "Blood Chit" sewn on the inside lining was a type of flag that contained a message in several languages identifying an airman as a U.S. Aviator if they were shot down, to aid the airman in avoiding capture and in being returned safely to U.S. Forces. A reward was offered for this assistance. Just think of all the conversations you can have with this jacket.
