This is a nice product, I have only used it once to far but looking forward to using it more. Meets my needs perfectly and allows me to see properly and reach the rudder pedals without feeling like a stretch.

I have been using a 3 seat pad for several years now, mainly to improve my visibility over the long nose of my plane. Having a better view improved my landings considerably. After changing planes, my seat pad kept sliding forward and this became a problem. I wanted one with a built-in back, to hold the bottom in place. I recently flew with a pilot who had one of these that hes had for 20 years, I immediately found this one and bought it. Ive only used it twice, but so far its great. It gives me the better forward vision and doesnt move around. The true test of comfort will be a 1,200 mile cross country I have planned for July.

Great seat. Just what I needed! A benefit I wasnt expecting is that it reduces fatigue on long flights. The Nelsons would be proud that you are carrying their seat.

I laughed at the description hinting that this is for kids. Im a 411 adult and this allows me to fly airplanes comfortably and with good visibility.

This flight cushion is very high quality and has really made an improvement in my flying enjoyment. I love it.

Bought a second one. First one with lower foam and lesser back pad I use as my primary seat cushion in a little Chalenger 1 and love it. The new one I had to get for my vertically challenged Wife, so she can see out the windshield and reach the pedals in the 172. The seat seams VERY stiff but hopefully will get softer with use. My wife uses it reversed. Seat as back cushion and back padding for seat. Now she can reach the pedals.

Good quality, thick cordura-style material thickness as advertised. Seat foam is very firm. I dont know if it will break in or not. Has an Aircraft Spruce logo facing forward when seated on top of back rest. Shipping was quick as usual. Bought to boost a child up so the could see over the glare shield.

Started taking some lessons again, and I always needed a cushion. This one-piece foldable back with a good firm bottom seat cushion looks and feels very good, and was just what I needed.
