The Pilot Quarters™ Custom* Solo Tee
Your first solo flight as a pilot is an experience you'll never forget. Choosing the right shirt is a unique challenge. You don't want to wear an uncomfortable shirt, but you also don't want to ruin your favorite shirt with a traditional aviation ritual.
The Pilot Solo Shirt Tail Tradition is a celebratory custom in aviation where a pilot's shirt tail is cut off by their flight instructor or fellow pilots as a symbol of the pilot's accomplishment and transition to solo flying. It is believed to have originated in the early days of aviation when aircraft controls were located on the rear cockpit and were operated by the pilot's shirt tail.
Today, the tradition serves as a rite of passage for pilots and a way to mark a significant milestone in their aviation career. Fortunately, Pilot Quarters™ has a solution that is fun and priced right for student pilots.
Introducing the Pilot Quarters™ Custom Solo Shirt, a comfortable t-shirt that can be customized with the airport of your choice located above the "data plate" on the shirt tail. Not only is this shirt comfortable and affordable, but it also saves you from ruining your favorite shirt during the traditional shirt tail cutting ceremony.
With just 4 weeks notice, we will customize and ship your solo shirt directly to you, so you can focus on your solo flight without worrying about what to wear. Trust Pilot Quarters™ to provide you with the perfect solution for your first solo flight as a pilot.
