Our story


Seth LaPierre, the inventor and owner of The Airplane Clip by FLYGA is a serial entrepreneur who has always been inspired by creating things that solve every-day problems. His love for travel and experiencing different cultures were instrumental to the inception and creation of FLYGA.

FLYGA is a made in USA travel accessory company that was inspired by the utility, simplicity, and beauty of Swedish design. FLYGA uncovers and creates hidden moments of joy throughout the travel experience. As a purpose-drive company, FLYGA delivers on promises around sustainability and social impact by working towards a zero environmental impact and by donating 15% of promo profits to women leadership initiatives.

Professionally, Seth is an alum of Tufts University where he studied Economics as well as Communications and Media Studies while earning the title Division Champion for the pole vault in Track & Field. We guess you could say he learned to fly at a young age...Following graduation Seth dove into entrepreneurship followed by a successful path through strategy and innovation consulting. In 2017 after years with a top management consulting firm and leading marketing strategy consulting firm helping Fortune 500 companies become more customer centric, Seth began the journey that would later become FLYGA.

Today, Seth lives outside Washington DC in Arlington, VA with his wife and 2 young children. Fun fact, Seth and his wife met in the seventh grade, later became high school sweethearts, and much later... after crushing her large coffee in Seth's seat pocket while on a flight, inspired what is now the hottest new travel essential, The Airplane Clip by FLYGA. Safe travels.
