Is this sexist/offensive/gross or am I just too sensitive?

I think it sends a message that the HPAC shouldn't be sending. Maybe it doesn't seem like much to some of the dirty old men in the association, but it certainly doesn't lend itself to the professional image that a national association should have.

Besides this all, if you wanted to see someone or be the someone in a thong, would you seriously want it to have an HPAC logo printed on it? [/img]

Women wear them, so we sell them. It's not taboo anymore to sell this sort of stuff IMHO.

Hello Rob,
who knows you might be right. But if you are, we probably shouldn't trust your judgment more than ours. Wink
I might be unsensitive myself, to your comment that is, but I would put more weight on the comment of a lady pilot.
The only lady pilot who would confide such a thing to me actually owns some.

Kidding aside, if we had some direct negative comments from some lady pilots we would of course discontinue the offer of this product.

p.s. Remember we are talking about underwear.
