Soaring Italian writing performance returns in a familiar fuselage, this time anodized in bold signal red. With playful design codes to charm frequent fliers and professional pilots alike, the Aviator has shifted up a gear – borrowing from the playbook of history’s most notorious flying ace. Aerodynamic lines recall a golden age of flight, with mechanical design codes dotted down the length of Aviator’s all-aluminum body. Handcrafted from brushed high-grade alloy, black IP steel hardware helps keep her grounded, but the skies will never be far from your thoughts.
Features include a bullet-nose cap, landing strut pocket-clip as well as mock-riveted apertures and seams. A leatherette travel case inspired by vintage-era flying goggles is yet another component to start conversations – and a place for aviators to stow their shades.

More than a century after his exploits, the Prussian pilot is remembered through films, video games and as Snoopy’s dog fighting nemesis.
