If you thought U.S. Wings jackets came from some New York fashion designer’s drawing, think again. U.S. Wings is the only official licensee for Flying Tigers-brand apparel and other government-issue aviator jackets. The company and its product are wearable symbols of free-flying American pride. A retired U.S. Army man, Sgt. David Hack (CEO of US Wings) has partnered with his wife Lani Hack (President of US Wings) since 1986. Forerunners in marketing, the couple tossed aside mail order marketing and took to the web early. They were one of the first brave web marketers in the country. What inspired them? Call it a great marriage between military bravado and confidence in a classic, authentic product.
