This modern design is intended to take the flight simulator instruments off our desks and put them in a more realistic simulator environment. Although the pre-drilled installation holes are universal in nature they are also specific for the Saitek brand of instruments.
The Volair Sim flight chassis’ name was derived as a play on the Spanish /Italian word volare, which means ‘to fly’. This futuristic looking layout is the near perfect setup for most of our flight simulations. You can adapt any piece or combination of pieces of flight sim gear to the basic chassis and go even further with a little imagination, a drill and a screwdriver.
The Volair Sim is a quality product that enhances the flight simulation environment to near real-world expectations. The high quality powdered tubular steel chassis built around the adjustable real world car racing seat is a true joy to experience. The pre-drilled mounting holes and innovative design features along with the universal adjustable mounts adds to the flexibility of the unit. The ability to mount up to a single 42 IN VESA spec monitor or three 19 – 30 IN widescreen monitors makes it an instant hit with all flight simmers.

Per the supplier: It is only the chassis. The cockpit chassis by itself does not come with any controls - it is up to the user to configure the plane to his/her preferences. Having said that, it is entirely possible to purchase the controls/avionics so it approximates the look/feel of C172. Saitek (the company that sells controllers and avionics) makes a Cessna Yoke, Rudder Pedals, Trim Wheel, Throttle Module (push-pull style). Then there is is switch panel, etc. It will not be 100% accurate but it will be very close. The user then can place the controls at ergonomically correct positions and replicate the C172 panel with pretty good accuracy. I hope that this helps. Note that this cockpit chassis is factory pre-drilled for ALL Saitek products so no drilling/additional mounting hardware will be needed.

Correct, it is the seat, chassis, and mounts for the monitors as pictured on the website.
No, we do not offer this in helicopter.
