Scheyden Precision Eyewear recently added two new models to its product lineup. The Albatross and the Mustang add to Scheyden’s extensive aviation-minded offerings.
According to the company, the Albatross model is similar to classic aviators and will suit any face type. The Mustang model is a larger frame, better suited to medium to large faces, a Scheyden representative said.
Both styles bridge the gap between classic thin-framed sunglasses and newer fashion glasses, meaning they have an appeal beyond the cockpit, but still fit well behind a headset.
Lens options include plastic polymer (CR39), mineral glass, and polarization. The glasses retail between $299 and $329.

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
