Do Army pilots really get issued sunglasses?

0

They do, which is pretty cool. All Army Aviators are issued a set of Ray-Ban type aviator sunglasses. A common misconception is that the glasses are for flying–this is incorrect. The glasses are not ballistic rated–they are sunglasses, after all. Your flight helmet has clear and shaded flip-down visors for use while flying. The sunglasses are actually for wear during the day before night flights so your eyes can adjust to the darkness more quickly.
