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.

Also, the chair has a central cut-out in the seat to mount a center joystick in the perfect position.

Design

The most important feature is the specialized form of the backrest.

The wider contured bottom part provides stability and support for the pilot. The slimmer top part allows for full freedom of the shoulder and elbows to have complete unimpeded joystick/throttle motion range.

With this seat allows full unristricted operation of the joystick and throttle.
