General history

Aviation has always been a challenge for mankind. Not only the machines but also the clothing and equipment they used began to change. After a whole lot of tests and experiences, the gear used by airmen started to get more focused on their needs and standarized for production. During WW II a large range of helmets, goggles, clothing, etc. were developed to protect the wearer as much as possible.
