Concept

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.

To facilitate this, the chair also 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.
