San Rafael CA – BrightLine Bags, an innovative and forward-thinking gear bag design company based in San Rafael, is delighted to announce that they were recently featured on Fox News for their support of “Fly for the Culture” .

Fly for the Culture is a non-profit organization which focuses on promoting diversity and inclusion across the aviation industry.  That includes everything from taking students up for introductory flights to put them in the front seat with pilots, to providing access to a host of careers in aviation

Fly for the Culture is the brainchild of 29-year-old African American pilot Courtland Savage.  Courtland, who got his pilot’s license at 17 and went on to a Military Aviation career including piloting the F/A-18 Super Hornet as a Winged Naval Aviator, chose to establish his foundation after serving his country and experiencing first-hand the lack of diversity in aviation. Brightline Bags heard about the project and wanted to be actively involved in it, and it resonated with many of the core beliefs of their company.

“When we learned about Fly for the Culture, we knew instantly that we wanted to be involved and support it in any way that we could,” said Ross Bishop of Brightline Bags. “We think it is a fantastic concept and idea, and we share the vision of Courtland, and want to help him achieve his ambitions. We are a proud supporter of Fly for the Culture

Brightline Bags was founded in 2008 by the owner and CEO Ross Bishop. As a Certified Flight  Instructor for Rotorcraft, Ross understood the challenges facing pilots in trying to find their perfect gear bag. The majority of bags on the market were either too small, didn’t have enough pockets or those with enough storage were simply too big and cumbersome. Ross utilized his engineering experience to design his very own flight bag. Once he began to show the design and concept to his fellow pilots, he discovered that there was a huge demand for this type of product. Inspired by this feedback, Ross made the decision to launch Brightline Bags, and the company has flourished ever since.
