Brightline B7 Flight Echo Flight Bag

Product Description

The B7 FLIGHT-ECHO is exactly the same as the standard B7 FLIGHT, except for two simple changes to make it work slightly better for Airline Crew. It comes with SPE (water bottle not included) instead of the SPA, and the J-Hook Main Handle (accepts J-Hook) instead of the plain Main Handle.

Included Items:

  • Pocket Cap Front
  • CS4
  • CS3
  • Flat Cap Rear
  • Side Pocket Charlie
  • Side Pocket ECHO
  • Main Handle J-Hook (has two slots to accept a J-Hook, but does not include a J-Hook)
  • Shoulder Strap


  • Interior of CS3: 13.5" tall, 10.0" wide, 3.0 inches deep. (34cm x 25cm x 7.6cm)
  • Interior of CS4: 13.5" tall, 10.0" wide, 4.0 inches deep. (34cm x 25cm x 10.2cm)
  • Exterior of entire bag: 14" tall, 13" wide, 10.5" deep. (36cm x 33cm x 27cm) (Including side pockets)
  • Keep in mind that the bag material is flexible, so the size of the interior storage may be able to "stretch" out just a bit in one direction or another. Also keep in mind that over-stuffing your bag can cause seam or material failure, and this is not covered by warranty.

Empty Weight:

  • 6.5 lbs. (1.8 kg)

The B7 FLIGHT is perhaps the most useful flight bag ever designed. It's a fact that some days you need more gear than others. The B7 lets you carry a full set of flight gear for cross country and basic IFR flight. And then it lets you downsize to a smaller bag for those days when you're just going to take a quick VFR flight.

The B7E consists of the POCKET CAP FRONT, CENTER SECTION 4, FLAT CAP REAR, along with two Side Pockets, Echo and Charlie. It also includes the MHJ and SS. It does NOT include a SLIM HANDLE KIT. If you ever think you'd like to remove the CS4 and zip just the two End Caps together to make the B0 SLIM, you'll need to make sure you also order an SLIM HANDLE KIT.

The B7 FLIGHT - ECHO is designed to hold one or two full-sized headsets plus a full suite of charts, and of course your iPad (or two), a large water bottle, plus all the small stuff you'll want along for the ride. It also serves as an unbeatable carry-on personal bag when traveling on commercial flights, or just as a terrific daily bag for a wide variety of personal and professional uses.

The CS4 and CS3 provide seven inches of storage depth (hence the name, "B7"), but keep in mind that there is also three thin flat storage areas BETWEEN the four modules for additional slim storage. (Remember, it is a soft bag so it can expand slightly in every direction.) Keep in mind also that you can add any other Center Section to the B7 (like zip a CS2 in between the CS3 and CS4) to add more storage on certain days. Any FLEX System module can zip onto any other FLEX System module.

The B7 FLIGHT will very commonly be used to carry two full-sized aviation headsets of any brand inside the CS4. (There is a nice, slightly-tricky way place two large headsets - like the BOSE A20 - inside this space. Just "intertwine" the ear cups in opposite directions. It's really nice to fit two headsets of any kind in such a relatively small space.) There is a specially-designed pocket on top of the CS4 to hold Sunglasses and their case. And then the CS3 will be used to hold a library of charts, or a iPad in it's bulky case, plus kneeboard, etc. A small collection of charts or flight docs can go in the spaces between the four modules. Surprisingly, a 13" Ultrabook or MacBook Pro can even fit into this "in between" space, and the iPad (or other tablet) can go in the main pocket on the FLAT CAP REAR.

The B7 FLIGHT also works amazingly well as a daily personal bag and/or as a commercial carry-on bag. A 13" laptop plus a load of documentation plus an iPad, plus all the small stuff like cables, adapters batteries, and support stuff for all your technology, your digital camera, snacks, etc - all of this fits easily in this bag. Even your noise-reduction headset for those long flights.

CS4: Next, comes the CS4 (4-inch Center Section), which is designed to hold two full sized aviation headsets. The CS4 comes with a divider shelf which serves to separate the compartment if necessary. You can instead fit 13” laptops or a small collection of documents (or both). (Many, but not all, 14" laptops will also fit. - But no 15" laptops will fit.) The CS4 has a really versatile dual-access feature. First, you get full top-access. You can unzip just the top of the bag to give access to your stuff right through the top of the bag. And then when you need, everything can also be accessed by unzipping the entire front panel all the way down to the bottom, giving access to the entire gray interior of the CS4. The other key thing about the CS4 is that it has two FLEX-Mount Side Pocket stations, one on each side, for attaching the two included side pockets. You can, of course, also trade out the pockets any time you like later on.

CS3: The other main storage module is the CS3 (3-inch Center Section). The CS3 is a perfect module for holding all the flight docs, plates and charts you'll need for your cross country or simple IFR flights. And, of course, in todays world, you'll likely store your iPad, even if it's in a bulky case, your kneeboard and you checklists and other docs. You'll even be able to store a 13" Laptop inside. The CS3 does have an external zipper on one side that gives access to a small internal pocket for storing small things you want to get to easily. You might instead use the CS3 to take along a couple of changes of clothes for a quick overnight trip somewhere.

FCR: The FLAT CAP REAR module offers two flat pockets on the outside, and one flat half-height slip pocket on the inner surface of the module. The primary outer pocket is accessed from the top and has a cover flap that is secured with Velcro. This where you'll likely store your iPad (as long as it's not in a thick case), or a manilla folder or two for some documents, or a magazine. There is an additional flat panel that covers the middle-third of the outside of the main panel. By default, the bottom edge of this panel is "tucked" into the top edge of the next panel below it. This allows both panels to act together as a single slip pocket that works great for sticking a boarding pass or other simple paperwork here. If the top panel is "untucked" from the bottom panel, the telescoping tubes of a suitcase or folding cart can pass through and the panel serves to secure your bag to those tubes (for when this FLAT CAP REAR is attached to other modules to form bags like the B2 COMPUTE, B4 SWIFT or the B7 FLIGHT). Then, when you remove your BrightLine Bag from the top of your suitcase, you can just "tuck" the top panel back into the bottom panel and it becomes a slip pocket again.

And finally, the SIDE POCKETS. The side pockets attach to the side of any module that has a FLEX-Mount Side Pocket Station. In this case, only to the sides of the CS4. There are no FLEX-Mount Side Pocket Stations on the sides of the CS3 because that module is not wide enough. This mounting method is super-secure, simple to install, and best of all, your pockets don't LOOK like they're detachable.

Optional Flex Array:

  • A simple velcro-covered panel with (loop) Velcro on one side
  • It will accept any of the Array pouches
  • Pouches can be organized/re-organized in any fashion
  • The Array stores directly inside the Flex Center Section of the Brightline Bag
  • The Array is 9.0 inches wide and 12.75 inches tall
  • Includes 6 pouches and an Array Base Plate

  • Excellent product. Love the compartments. Very durable.
  • Pros: Excellent product. Very doable. Love the compartments.

Durable and well designed
  • Go ahead and pay up for a bag that will last you many more times the length of more traditional, poorly constructed flight bags....... including those sold by Sportys. Trust me, I’ve been there, I’ve done that.

    So many nooks and crannies to stowaway everything from your largest to smallest items.
  • Pros: Durable construction, expandable, numerous compartments, thoughtfully designed
  • Cons: Sometimes easy to forget where you stored something there were so many compartments

Love it
  • If you're interested in being organized in the cockpit this is the bag for you. Amazing storage available. If you need additional storage you use one of the expandable sections of the bag. You can't go wrong with this bag.
  • Pros: Spacious but not bulky, Fits perfectlly in the cockpit,
  • Cons: None so far

Better than I expected
  • I was hesitant to buy this bag because I wasn't sure it was going to be big enough to hold everything from my previous bag but it did the job. I like the fact that the pockets are all squared off so you don't have to squeeze items in. A couple of the front pockets are a little to small to really put anything in but it doesn't matter because it doesn't affect the rest of the bag. The zippers work great, I had no issues zipping it together at all and I love the fact that you can put stuff in between the two zippered compartments.....ipad, magazines, safety vest. The water bottle holder is fantastic, I no longer have to squeeze it in my flight bag or roll aboard. I also like that when I go to training I can unzip two of the compartments and take just the basics. Now I just hope it holds up.
  • Pros: Square pockets, good zippers, water bottle holder, being able to make the bag smaller for training or short trips, no slip handl
  • Cons: price, a few pockets are too small for practical use
