EXCLUSIVELY FOR PILOTS AND FLIGHT ATTENDANTS, THIS COLLECTION INCORPORATES GROUNDBREAKING TECHNOLOGIES AND FEATURES
Travelpro, the leader in luggage known internationally for being pilot designed and flight crew tested, is proud to introduce its bold new FlightCrew™ 5 collection. Sure to satisfy the most discerning travel industry professionals, this luggage stands out from the crowd for its uncommon durability, creativity and functionality. Proud of its reputation for innovation, Travelpro is always listening to flight crews for ways to improve its luggage while setting the industry’s highest quality standards.
In keeping with its demand for exacting performance, Travelpro conducted rigorous testing on all features of this 17-piece collection to ensure a smooth ride and unmatched reliability. The testing of the main mechanical parts: the extension handle up and down cycle test, the zipper reliability test of open and close cycles and the wheel high mileage test on rough terrain were all conducted to meet the highest standards. The Travelpro® FlightCrew 5 collection was also examined for its endurance by the 70 lb drop test in below 0°F tempe ratures, fabric tensile strength test, fabric surface abrasion resistance test and water repellency test, all adding to its appeal to the durability needs of the professional traveler.
In addition, protective bumper feet, ballistic nylon fabric with DuraGuard® coating, superior screw construction which allows the luggage to be easily repaired, sealed ball-bearing inline skate wheels that are removable, protective crash-guard components and a new reinforced, gusseted back pocket translates into long-term sturdiness for those who count on their luggage to go the extra mile.
“Travelpro could not be more excited to offer this amazing new FlightCrew 5 luggage collection to pilots and flight attendants worldwide,” said Scott Applebee, Vice President of Marketing for the Travelpro family of brands. “Our goal is to craft superior luggage that makes the demanding lifestyle of airline professionals easier, which is why our long history of providing luggage to the airline industry makes Travelpro the ‘go to’ brand for flight professionals. This is the reason why over 90 airlines choose Travelpro.”
Innovation is front and center with features such as a recessed push button, designed to reduce accidental handle activation, “Anti-Crush” handle technology which prevents denting when the back of the bag is impacted and handle stops at 38″, 40″ and 42.5″ to guarantee a comfortable roll for users of different heights. The Spinner model in the line features patented MagnaTrac™ wheels which are a revolution in spinner technology. These magnetic wheels align in any direction to always roll straight, eliminating the ‘drift’ inherent in spinner luggage. The patented Contour grip with cushioned touch points offers even more comfort and greater control.
High mileage travelers such as pilots and flight attendants will be amazed at the versatility and choices available in this collection. The full tote selection offers totes that protect computers and tablets with padded sleeves and a vertical rolling overnighter which easily rolls down an airplane aisle, with improved armor on the bottom for extra durability. Must-have ancillary pieces include food coolers in large and small sizes for added convenience and a garment sleeve available as a separate item, which has a padded roll bar to keep clothes from wrinkling.
This distinctive collection consists of the following pieces: Crew Cooler, Large Crew Cooler, City Tote, Flight Tote, Deluxe Tote, Multi-Purpose Tote, Suiter Sleeve, Horizontal Rolling Overnighter, Vertical Rolling Overnighter, Expandable Rollaboard®, Slim Rollaboard, Expandable Pilot Rollaboard, several other Rollaboard sizes, and the Expandable Rollaboard Spinner.
