About Us

Our First Solo

Ever since he heard his grandfather telling stories of his time in a B-24 during World War II, Mark has been fascinated by aviation. Like many pilots, he took a few lessons as a kid, but had to give up training when a family and career came along. After a 25-year break, Mark earned his Private Pilot certificate and now enjoys flying a Cessna 172 and a Citabria for business and pleasure.

During his flight training, Mark couldn’t find a flight bag that met his needs. After a conversation with his flight instructor, he decided to design one that did, and the result was the Flight Outfitters Lift bag. From that single product he and his team have since built one of the most popular brands in aviation. Each of the bags, kneeboards, and accessories in the Flight Outfitters line is driven by Mark’s enthusiasm for flying and making sure that each product can help you “pilot your own adventure.”
