BrightLine Bags, Inc. was founded in 2008 as a result of the surprising need to create a better Pilot Flight Bag.
As any student pilot or flight instructor or general aviation pilot can tell you, there are LOTS of items that have to be carried out to the aircraft for every flight. You know: headset, fuel tester, navigation charts and/or iPad, kneeboard, flashlights, checklists, sunglasses, logbook, pens, extra batteries. And then there are many important items like all the cords, cables, adapters, chargers, and batteries for the mobile electronics, as well as extra charts, hand-held radio, Leatherman-type multi-tool, extra pens & markers, reading glasses, and a place for really small stuff like coins, business cards (and your chapstick and ibuprofen), and other miscellaneous stuff. Not to mention the need to store your cell phone, wallet, car keys, and pocket stuff during the flight.
