The quest for the perfect flight bag isn’t easy. It’s hard to strike a balance between carrying all the gear you need and lugging around a heavy monstrosity.
Part of the problem is that different missions require different amounts of stuff. A local trip around the pattern might only require the bare minimum of equipment. An overnight cross country might require all your flying gear, plus a change of clothes and an extra headset for passengers.
Up to now, that’s meant either lugging around a huge gear back all the time, or switching your crap between bags. Either option is a huge pain.
When I started instructing, I decided to go for the most minimalist option I could for my gear. Part of that was switching to the ultra-compact QT Halo Headset (you can read that review here).
The other part was finding a bag that was small enough to not be a burden when switching between planes…
For the last few months, I’ve been flying with a BrightLine bag. And I think I’ve finally found the perfect flight bag.
