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.
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.
