Several of you asked us about compatibility of the MFG Crosswind rudder pedals with our cockpit. One of our customers, Steve was kind enough to share his observations of the installation. I think you will agree that the final result is remarkable.
Steve writes, “I would like to share some photos that may be of interest. They show my MFG Crosswind rudder pedals mounted in my Volair Sim cockpit. By using width adjustment blocks (available from MFG) and angling the rudder mounting platform all the way up, the pedals have ample clearance in all positions.I secured the pedals using four bolts. This necessitated the drilling of holes in the mounting platform (not easy to do with a hand drill!).
Thank you and congratulations on a great product!
I fly Caravans and light twins for a geophysical survey company and regularly use the Volair Sim for IFR practice between work assignments.”
Once again, Volair Sim will be exhibiting at the FlightSimCon 2017 Aviation and Flight Simulation Conference that takes place from June 10-11, 2017 at the Sheraton Hotel at Bradley Airport in Windsor Locks, CT. We had a great turnout last year and we are expecting an even larger event this year. We are looking forward to great conversations and connecting in person with our current and prospective customers. Below a photo from last year’s event. See you all there!

Kevin, a customer of ours sent us a link to his VR gaming rig build using the Volair Sim chassis. Note since many of you asked about ButtKicker installation, you may want to check his installation as he mounts the ButtKicker in a pretty inconspicuous location. You can read the whole review here.
Hopefully, everyone had a nice relaxing Thanksgiving. Here is the long-awaited update…
We are on schedule to start shipping the cockpits on Thursday December 1st.
Cockpits will ship based on the priority of the order received. Keep in mind our system updates tracking numbers overnight so don’t be alarmed if you do not get your tracking number right away and alway check your SPAM folder prior to contacting us.
