The Aviator Whistle or Ditching whistle, as they are commonly known, were used by USAAF pilots during the Second World War. They were usually fixed on to the collar of a flight jacket, ready to use if downed and wanting to attract attention.
This whistle has been crafted to exact specifications of original Aviator Whistles by the Noda Kakusai Company, for The Real McCoy’s. Featuring a custom made split ring to attach to a jacket, and engraved branding, the whistle has been made from a durable solid brass and finished with a nickel plating. A waterproof cork pea sits inside to help produce a rich sound with no rattle.
