Flight Outfitters Launches New Centerline Backpack

Flight Outfitters is very proud to introduce the Centerline Backpack. “Over the past several years we have received hundreds of PIREPs from our customers asking if we had a backpack, or if we could make a backpack. The Centerline Backpack represents 18 months of development efforts because in true Flight Outfitters form, we did not want to just make a ‘me too,’ run-of-the-mill backpack,” said Flight Outfitters President Mark Glassmeyer.

The Flight Outfitters team of pilots analyzed customer feedback and talked with their Ambassadors to design the Centerline. “We feel confident the Centerline possesses the same ‘magic recipe’ as our Lift bag, which is the perfect blend of functionality and simplicity, all at a retail price under $100,” said Flight Outfitters Sales Coordinator Shannon Whitaker. The Centerline backpack is the 7th flight bag Flight Outfitters has released since it started with the Lift and Thrust flight bags in 2015. The addition of the Centerline to the Flight Outfitters product offering gives aviators a choice of virtually every style flight bag they may want for their particular mission.

One of most unique features of the Centerline is the ability to utilize the entire center compartment or section it off via a fold-down flap. This divides the main compartment of the backpack into two separate sections, each with its own access point. The Centerline Backpack retails for $99.95 at all of your favorite aviation retailers.

A unique backpack for the modern pilot.

The Centerline Backpack has organization for all the aviation gear you carry, but is versatile enough to use every day. There is a dedicated headset slot, plus a padded tablet/computer pocket. There are plenty of elastic pockets inside the top flap to keep your cords and electronic accessories organized, and the center divider can be folded down to create one large storage area. Whether you’re at the airport, the office or the classroom, the Centerline makes it easy to move back and forth as your gear changes.

  1. I just received your new Lift XL Pro flight bag and love it. It has the extra room that I needed vs. the Lift flight bag that I’ve been using for several years. Somehow I always seem to acquire more stuff rather than getting rid of it. For example, I can now carry a portable Bluetooth keyboard for my iPad that wouldn’t fit in the Lift bag. My only recommendations would be for a slightly larger exterior mesh pocket for the portable aviation radio and a zippered top for the open side pocket. I had some difficulty fitting my iCom A24 through the elastic into the mesh pocket but I got it eventually. I had to watch the video to figure out what the open side pocket and bottom zipper were for. The top has a tendancy to gape open when the bag expands and a top zipper would fix that. I do like the feature of being able to unzip the pocket and fit them over the handle of a rolling bag. Nice design! This is a great bag and I’m anxious to try it out in all of the airplanes that I fly.
