The AFE soft flight case (or pilot's 'flight bag') has been our most popular flight case for many years, because of its combination of practicality and good value.
Similar in size to a conventional square pilot case, the 'soft-sided' design makes this flight bag both lighter, and easier to stow in confined spaces, than rigid-sided flight cases. Access to the main compartment is from the top, and secured by two snap-on clips. As well as having the capacity to hold almost anything a pilot could reasonably want to take flying, the AFE soft flight case is also large enough to carry a standard laptop computer (or any number or iPads or tablet computers).
We've 'road tested' this design to destruction over years of hard use in all manner of aircraft, including all popular airliner overhead bins. We've never been refused boarding as a 'carry on' item and it's never let us down!
