Regulation U.S. Army Air Service Pilot's Flying Outfit, WWI

The goggles, leather helmet and long leather coat were standard items, though airmen used a wide variety of styles. The silk scarf protected the pilot's neck from chafing as he constantly scanned the sky for enemy aircraft. Boots, leather leggings and riding-style breeches were standard items from the regular army uniform.
