Best Gifts for Your Loved Ones with an Aviation Career

The holidays are just around the corner, and while your loved one may be traveling and working this time, here at Sheffield’s School of Aeronautics, we have done the work for you and created a holiday list or birthday present for your special someone.



  1. Aviation Headset

Every great pilot, aircraft dispatcher and even air traffic controller needs a great pair of headphones to communicate. If you are feeling lost on what you should get someone in the aviation career, start with a pair of headphones. All people in the aviation field need headphones to communicate and listen to what the people around them are saying, splurge a little on the best quality and don’t feel bad about doing some extra research on the different types of headphones each field use.

  1. Engraved Jewelry

For those who get lonely while working on trips for away from home, seeing a personalized bracelets or necklace can make them feel a little but closer to home. Look for a necklace of an airplane or maybe a bracelet you can engrave something underneath. Flight attendants do have strict dress codes, so check with them on jewelry regulations before you commit to a final purchase.

  1. Travel Adapter

This is perfect for the recent graduate who has completed their training. Most pilots will already have one, but so the saying goes, the more the merrier. These gadgets can easily become misplaced and is a must for today’s world when traveling, supplying your pilot with an extra one or two won’t hurt.

  1. Sunglasses

A total necessity for pilots when flying in the early morning, not only is this a great gift a pilot but you can also gift this to anyone else in the aviation field, who doesn’t love a pair of new sunglasses? Our recommendation from Sheffield School of Aeronautics is to go for the aviation style glasses.

  1. Bomber Jacket

Classic and cool is the best way to describe this timeless piece. Every aircraft dispatcher, pilot, and even flight attendant can use it when they are waiting to board or on their time off. Let them be the envy among their aviation friends. Leather or shiny, you can’t go wrong with a bomber jacket.
