The Falcon Pilots Boot Mk 3 is the third generation of Altberg pilots boot, the Mk 3 boot has improved lace stowage and reduced seams around the foot to decrease snagging or catching in the cockpit.
In 2016 we were approached by B.A.E. (British Aerospace Engineers) about the possible development of a pilot/aircrew boot.
Their requirements included compatibility with both aircraft cockpit as well as air crew pressure suits.
Our aircrew/pilots boots have been independently tested using ISO and BSEN test methods, and for some specific areas of aircraft and pressure suit compatibility we were supported by B.A.E.
Some key features of our range of aircrew boots are
- sole - zero debris pick up
- snag free upper design
- resistance to aircraft fuels and solvents
- flame resistant soft leather upper
The boot is available in a choice of 3 climate variants;
- Temperate breathable
- Temperate waterproof
- Cold weather
For full details of testing contact the Altberg factory.
NOTE: With soft leather boots - follow the instructions in the Altberg bootcare user guide. For bootcare advice, please see videos on Drying Out Leather Boots, Treatment for Water Repellent Boots and Getting a High Shine.
