You mentioned 1980s in your subject line but don't specify a nation or service.  Some countries use very different colors of flight suits or other accessories, and even vary by region of deployment and/or aircraft type, so it'll narrow things down if you have a particular aircraft and/or country in mind.

 

If you have any online photos you can use a "color selector" website to find the RGB values, then use a site like Encycolorpedia to find the closest match in hobby paint lines.

Typical flight gear you may need to confirm could include:

- Flight suit

- G-suit ("chaps" on fast jets)

- Life vest and/or jacket

- Gloves

- Boots

- Helmet

- Shoulder/Lap belts

- Leg restraints

Try Tamiya XF-73 for the flight suit. Darken it it up a tad for the g-suit and survival vest. It'll seem light at first, but with a dark wash, the color should settle in.

 

Oxygen mask can be either XF-62 Olive Drab or maybe XF-19 Sky Grey depending on the type of helmet. It may not be an exact match but it'll be close, I think.
