Avirex A-2 goatskin dating help

from my little bit of research, these are not “serious” jackets though the earlier ones are favored higher than the mall variety. I found this today at a vintage mall, it was priced right, fits nice, made in USA and of goatskin. It has an EMAR labeled zipper and scovill snaps if that helps.
I’m curious if it is possible to date this jacket.

While it looks black, it is a rather dark brown and the lining is more orange/brown than the photos appear.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Likely nyc made in the early to mid 80’s.

I know the brand’s rep has fallen on hard times but back then they were the darling of NYC yuppies. Schott was the domain of bikers, blue collars and cbgb wannabes.
