When designing The Aviatrix, our designer Oejong Kim was inspired by flight helmets worn by female aviators in the 1920s and '30s. These brave women overcame tremendous gender-based obstacles and injustices to pursue their dreams of taking to the air. Their pioneering work helped to shift the world's understanding of what women are capable of and continue to inspire millions to this day.
