Taking measurement made easy

A personal fitting is still the best prerequisite for a fitting uniform. However, large distances between our client and us do not always make this possible.

Under these conditions, we have created an online tool that makes taking measurements easy. Short videos show how and where the required measurements can be taken and then entered in a data field. All data is transmitted - in compliance with all data protection regulations - and with the support of an AI system, which is based on all our experience, the most suitable uniform size for you is determined. Of course, the determined size is finally checked for plausibility by an expert. Try it out. Here you can go to our Measurement-Tool.


NEW: The uniform trousers that adapt to the flight level!

Based on our years of working with uniforms for airlines and feedback from pilots, we know: Before the crew takes their seats in the cockpit, the belt is loosened and possibly the top button on the waistband is undone. The reason is provided by flight physiology: At an altitude of 30,000 to 40,000 feet, the pressure in the cabin still corresponds to an altitude of 6,000 to 8,000 feet which causes the abdominal girth to increase by about 4 cm. That's a whole clothing size!

We now solve this inconvenience with uniform pants that have a stretch waistband that adjusts to changes in the body and a matching leather belt with the same function. The pants fit during the preflight check just as well as during the cruise section and then also during the engine shutdown and the post-flight inspection, when the aircraft is already back in the parking position. The uniform trousers with stretch waistband guarantee a constant and comfortable fit. More than ever before, pilots can concentrate on their task without being distracted by a constricting waistband. The uniform pants with stretch waistband thus contribute significantly to the safety and efficiency of flight operations.


Oeko-Tex Certification completed

Green Milestones in the Sky: We are excited to announce that our uniforms now proudly bear the esteemed Oeko-Tex-Certification (certficate VN020 223919).

This significant recognition underscores our commitment to sustainability and well-being. The uniforms are crafted from top-quality materials that have undergone rigorous testing for harmful substances and ecological compatibility. This initiative reflects our ongoing endeavor to not only provide top-notch services but also to ensure that our work attire adheres to the highest ecological standards.

By embracing eco-friendly materials, we are not only contributing to the well-being of the crews but also playing our part in a more sustainable future within the aviation industry.


SMETA 4 Pillar Audit

In a SMETA-4-pillar audit, social responsibility with special attention to labour standards and health, the safety of work processes, environmental management and the ecological footprint as well as the ethical principles in business activities are analysed and subjected to critical assessment.

Not only due to the fact that we use only OEKO-TEX-100 certified materials, manufacture in the EU and meet very high standards anyway, the audit confirmed that we fulfil all requirements in all 4 pillars of SMETA.


50 sycamore trees planted

Originally intended as a noise barrier, this forest plot has taken on a completely different meaning in times of climate change: It improves our ecological footprint!

To further support this, 50 young sycamore maple trees were planted. Their advantage: they drive their roots deep into the earth and thus also reach deeper groundwater layers.
