USAF 7 Summits Team Member Patch

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
Where never lark, or even eagle flew.
-- Poem "High Flight" by John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

Aviator Gear is proud of the opportunity to donate custom embroidered patches to the USAF 7 Summits Team. These U.S. Air Force members have carried the American and USAF flags to the highest points of each continent, ending atop the highest point on Earth. On May 19th, they became the first team of active duty American military members to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. The USAF 7 Summits Challenge is dedicated to positively highlighting the U.S. Air Force, building esprit d ’corps among Airmen, and honoring comrades who have fallen in the line of duty.

Starting seven years ago, the USAF 7 Summits Challenge has successfully climbed Mt. Elbrus in Europe, Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, Mt. Aconcagua in South America, Mt. McKinley in North America, Mt. Vinson in Antarctica, Mt. Kosciuszko in Australia and now Mt. Everest in Asia.

The USAF 7 Summits Challenge is significant to Aviator Gear founder Cory "Trap" Bower, a graduate of the USAF Academy who has served over 21 years as a pilot in the USAF. Cory says, "I am glad Aviator Gear could help recognize the amazing achievement of these hard-core Airmen and their tribute to those who have died in service to our nation." Aviator Gear CEO Amanda Bower adds, "We're proud to promote groups that give back to our military and their families."
