What Sunglasses Do Commercial Pilots Wear?

Since 1978, Randolph Engineering has offered pilots, adventurers and tastemakers alike military-grade eyewear.

But did you know Randolphs are worn by commercial pilots, too?

Randolph aviators were born from aviation. We respect where we come from and reinvent where we’re going. Pilots of all kinds have picked us up, put us on and felt the difference.

Commercial Pilot Aviators

With each take-off, commercial, airline and military pilots stake their lives on their sight.

Experts under pressure are relieved to know that Randolphs don’t compromise on performance. Randolph Aviators are precision engineered with clarity that rivals a camera lens.

SkyTec™ Lens Technology offers 100% UVA / UVB harmful ray protection, backside anti-reflective coating, blue light protection, infrared rays management, and visual light transmission of 15% for non-polarized aviators. Randolph’s superior lens technology helps to reduce eye fatigue at high altitudes and is an essential travel companion in flight.

Handcrafted by American artisans, Randolph offers a lifetime guarantee on the solder joints of all sunglasses. Each pair is also drop-tested, wear tested and military approved. This means Randolph’s Aviator will stand strong through your most critical moments in flight.

Choose from a variety of lens colors, frame metals and aviator styles, too. They’re designed with the individualist in mind.

Why Do Pilots Wear Randolphs? 3 Reasons

1. Support your vision during flight with superior eye protection.

Everyone experiences eye fatigue after enough exposure to light, except pilots can’t risk sore eyes while in the cockpit. Gray and tan lens colors are popular for adding a neutral tint to your vision, helping add contrast and calming your eyes with precision optics.

2. Rely on durable sunglasses built to last a lifetime. Or two.

Randolph offers a lifetime guarantee on all solder joints and manufacturer-related damage to the frame. Your frames may twist and bend out of shape, but they will not snap. Simply bend your frames back into place. Or, if you want them looking good as new, send them to us for repair as part of our repair program.

3. Pay homage to decades of aviation history.

Military pilots have relied on us since 1978. Our Aviators are built according to the strictest sunglasses regulations in the world for the ultimate quality and durability, decade after decade. We sometimes upgrade the designs of our styles with new brow bars, temple tips, frame colors and more, but you’ll always recognize us for our jewelry-quality metals and handcrafted details in authentic American-made aviators. Check out our styles named after famous pilots and aviation icons, including Amelia, Noyes, and Intruder.
