Method Seven is a specialty optics company that creates sunglasses known for their comfort, clarity, and safety. The company’s innovations in optics are geared towards professionals and enthusiasts who work or indulge their passions in challenging visibility conditions. Method Seven’s line of pilot sunglasses has everything that aviator professionals need for a safe flight while protecting their precious eyesight.
Method Seven’s Aviator sunglasses feature non-polarized glare reduction, UV and infrared protection, a precision-engineered design for a comfortable fit throughout prolonged flights, and the use of aerospace-grade titanium for lasting quality. The company’s sunglasses are offered in four different frame types with two types of lenses available in a range of VLT (Visible Light Transmission) options.
The company’s lineup of pilot aviators for women, the Aviatrix, is designed to fit female pilots while giving them an array of choices in lens type and visibility. The classically stylish, lightweight, and functional frame is finished in matte gold and crafted from Japanese hand-tooled titanium. It is the first to feature tangle-free nose pads that won’t get caught in hair. The frame is also thin enough to be comfortable when coupled with noise-canceling headsets or flight helmets.
The Aviatrix frame is paired with five different lens options – the FLT18, FLT24 Prescription Rx, SKY18, SKY9, and SKY30. The SKY lenses offer excellent visual performance, unmatched clarity and contrast, and scratch resistance. The FLT lenses, which are 30% more lightweight than SKY lenses, are ideal for aerobatic and open-cockpit flying and are nearly indestructible.
One of the most popular offerings in the Aviatrix line, the Aviatrix SKY9 offers the darkest variant of the SKY lenses. The SKY9 lens has a VLT of just 9% making it uniquely suited to extremely bright conditions with high heat and harsh light. The SKY lenses are crafted by combining mineral glass with 11 rare earth elements and 13 proprietary coatings. This selection of elements and coatings gives the SKY lenses powerful notch filtering abilities and the ability to block UV and infrared heat without sacrificing color or clarity.
The Aviatrix SKY9 sunglasses have received several 5-star reviews on its product listing page from verified buyers. One review notes the tangle-free design of the nose pads by saying, “I have owned so many sunglasses and these are the last sunglasses I will ever own. They are so incredible! My favorite feature is that they don’t get stuck in my hair. Customer service is absolutely incredible too!” Another reviewer comments on their utility by saying, “I fly professionally and I've been searching for sunglasses that provide relief from the sun, yet allow enough light through for my older eyes to read small print inside the flight deck. These are perfect for that. Highly recommended.”
For pilots who need peripheral eye protection, Method Seven offers the Altitude series of wrap pilot glasses. The Altitude frame, designed specifically for use with headsets, is made from high-temperature injected plastics in a base 8 curve wrap design. The frame’s advanced construction is also supplemented using thin titanium alloy temple pieces. The lens spectrum in the Altitude frame includes SKY9, SKY18, SKY30, and FLT18.
The Altitude Wrap SKY18 sunglasses are built using medium-tint lenses that are a great choice for both general and mixed conditions. The SKY18 lenses, as the name suggests, have a VLT of 18%, like most other aviation glasses. The sunglasses have a perfect 5-star rating from over 60 reviews on Method Seven’s website.
