Flight Chair – MFC-5 Night Falcon
The Flight Chair is the first office chair developed especially for flight control. The MFC-5 Night Falcon cover is made from Cordura 1000D mil-spec (black) fabric.
Selection: Without Brake: Standard – for use without pedals. Caster and Rotation Brake: The chair can be set in a fixed position for optimal pedal use.
Production time: 6 weeks
Our goal was to create a chair that combines high quality, ergonomics, seating comfort (especially for long flights), and that works well with different flight control setups.
Also, the chair has a central cut-out in the seat to mount a center joystick in the perfect position.
The most important feature is the specialized form of the backrest.
The wider lower part gives the pilot stability – the narrower upper part ensures unrestricted freedom of movement in the shoulder and elbow area.
With this seat allows full unristricted operation of the joystick and throttle.
- Height adjustable
- Synchronous mechanism – the seat and backrest move synchronously with each other
- You can fix the backrest in 5 positions
- The backrest’s height is adjustable in 6 positions
- Seat depth adjustment 47-52 cm (103.6-114.6 in)
- Padded 4-D armrests
- Glass fiber reinforced base
- Seat cut-out for center joysticks
Optional for pedal users:
- Lockable easy-running castors for all floors
- Rotation Brake
The chair cover is made from 100% CORDURA® 1000D Mil-Spec fabric. Because of its exceptional abrasion resistance and tear strength, Cordura is a clear choice for heavy-duty applications. It is made in the USA (Berry Compliant) and meets all the requirements for military specifications (DTL-32439A). This fabric is specifically tested for colorfastness, breaking strength, tear strength, water repellency, color and more in order to meet military standards.
A local North German manufacturer makes our chairs. It is a company known for producing high-quality office chairs since 1966. Each chair is made by hand.
