WW2 German Luftwaffe LKpS101 Fliegerkopfhaube – Summer Flight Helmet VERY NICE! During WW1, most pilots quickly realized the need for protective headgear due to the cold weather effects while in an open cockpit. As no headgear was readily available, pilots were forced to utilize commercially produced leather motorcycle and automobile helmets. During WW2, the German military produced approx. 10 variations of flight helmets for various operational conditions, as well as with or without radio communication equipment. This specific helmet was designed with radio equipment for fighter and bomber pilots. Made of cotton and fleece, this helmet is in EXCELLENT used condition. There are no rips or tears, and the fabric is still very soft and supple. All straps are fully adjustable, and the data label is still intact indicating, LKpS101, Fl. As it is in used condition there is a bit of wear and marks. The leather covers for the ear phones are also still fully intact! Throat mic and cord are still intact. Would make a FANTASTIC and VERY RARE addition to any collection or display!! The item “WW2 German Luftwaffe LKpS101 Aviator Summer Flight Pilot Helmet NICE!
