Due to increases in raw material prices, shipping costs, and and import duties, we regretfully have to implement a price increase for our Volair Sim Chassis. The price is going up by $100 to $695 effective October 1st, 2018. Customers who have already pre-ordered the chassis and any orders placed before October 1st, 2018 will benefit from the old ($595) price and will also receive priority shipping based on the order date.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused. We believe that, even with the unfortunate price increase, the Volair Sim cockpits provide an unbeatable value. Please see the following updated comparison matrix showing that Volair Sim is still an undisputed leader in both the features and affordability!
EAA Oshkosh visitors that purchase the cockpit this week during the show will receive a FREE arm rest kit. Just send us a photo of yourself in the sim and when you place an order we will include the arm rest fee-of-charge. Our cockpits can be demoed in the Innovation Showcase tent which is just North East of the Tower.
This year, in partnership with Thurstmaster, Volair Sim will be exhibiting at the EAA Innovation Showcase. The Innovation Showcase is located right next to the Boeing Plaza. Please stop-by and say hello and get a chance to cool down (yes, we will have Air Conditioning!) and at the same time check out some innovative products from several aerospace companies.
Couple of important announcements:
First, we hope to see you all at FlightSimCon in Dallas TX in couple of weeks (June 22-24).
We are proud to announce our partnership with Thrustmaster and will be demoing some of their brand-new products, just announced at the E3 at our booth.
Lastly, wanted to wish all father’s Happy Father’s day. We are offering 10% off during the week of the 11th only for these last-minute father’s day gifts.
I hope you all have a nice Christmas break. Good news to report. We began shipping the backorders today and you will start to get your tracking numbers on Wednesday (27th) and Thursday (28th). We should be able to ship orders entered after Christmas later this week. Thank you all for your patience.
Also, if you have not placed an order for our Large Display Stand, you can do so now as we have these available for immediate shipment. The Large Display Stand allows you to mount three TVs up-to 46″ in diagonal and vary the angle of the side monitors for a total customizable set-up. Below is an example with three 40″ TVs.
We hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving. The Volair Sim staff is back in the office working hard. We wanted to give you an update on few things, most importantly on the Triple Display Stand. The good news is that it is done and we are kitting the first batches with scheduled shipments hopefully still before Christmas. For those who have not yet ordered, there is still time but act now as these are going quick!
Note: As we clearly specify in all of the product information materials, the stand accommodates three displays up-to 46″ in diagonal. So please do not ask us whether 3 x 55″ TVs would fit 😉
I hope you will appreciate the extra features we incorporated into the final product. For instance, the stand feet are now extendable for extra stability. You can get an early start on understanding the assembly process (which is honestly pretty minimal) by downloading the Volair Sim Triple Display Stand Assembly Instructions Rev1.1.
With the popularity of the Avionics Panels, it has been a bit of a challenge keeping the product in-stock. We hope to resume shipments on these around Christmas so place your order now for priority shipment.
The Volair Sim cockpit chassis are in-stock but the inventory is getting low, so if you are wanting these for Christmas you must act now. Just like the Avionics Panels we will have more around Christmas but depending on your location, we may not be able to get these dispatched in-time for Christmas delivery.
On behalf of the Volar Sim team, we wanted to wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving and a relaxing, perhaps sim-filled, holiday. In keeping with our Thanksgiving tradition, our office will be closed Thursday and Friday and we will be back on Monday 11/27.
