Flight Chair – MFC-2 Grey Shrike
The Flight Chair is the first office chair developed especially for flight control. The Gray Shrike is covered with soft and supple gray fabric.
We never intended to build our chairs. However, since there wasn‘t a chair on the market suitable for flight, we had to take action. In the past, we often had negative experiences using joysticks and throttles with office and gaming chairs. Thus, eventually, we had no choice but to design our own.
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 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.
- 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
- padded 4-D armrests
- Glass fiber reinforced base
- lockable easy-running castors for all floors
- Seat cut-out for center joysticks
The seat cover is made of robust but soft and supple gray fabric.
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, exclusively from parts from Germany and the EU.
