I was just notified today that I was accepted as formal. Here are my notes as I went through the journey to build a TFA Pilot. I have some notes on TLJ and the Hose seemed to be a common issue.

TFA Pilot Notes

Note prices and availability changes. I custom modeled an 3d printed some items myself. Where available I note alternates.

TFA Break Down

Fabric for flight suite is most definitely a 1000D Cordura Deep Orange color (CTD1000 Orange)
Fabric for the vest is a thermal skin material (more of a rubber-ish than a fabric)
• There are some that may look at the “flightsuit + vest from Costume Base, and source the other parts from elsewhere. (Not Chosen)
- Philonius [Makes really good stuff] (Recommended)
- suit & vest as a set
- leg flare bands
- Canvas side pouch
