At the stage of the First World War, the aircraft of the Royal Air Force in England had many trouble with the temperature when flying. One of the most important reasons for this was that the aircraft cabins were not locked, so the drivers had to choose an attire / uniform to protect them against bad temperatures and resist the bad weather and environment. So, when being in the air, that was why at first they wore fur coats or jackets. That first leather model was replicated by flyers of US Army during World War II.
