Next Level Racing Introduces New Flight Simulation Hardware

Chrome 1mjFBmqV48

Whilst the name of the company implies that flight simulation isn’t their speciality, this is far from the case as Next Level Racing has introduced a new series of products designed specifically to enhance flight simulation. The all-new F-GT Flight Simulator and the GTtrack Flight Simulator are both designed to offer a premium experience for enthusiasts with a desire to have a mounted and realistic hardware set-up.

Building on from their range of racing equipment, the new Combat Flight Pack can turn these set-ups into fully functional at-home cockpits designed to mount all of your equipment in realistic positions. The Combat Flight Pack can be applied to either the F-GT Cockpit series or the GTtrack series, as well as be used in conjunction with Motion Platform v3 to give you an at-home motion cockpit.

The new Combat Flight Pack isn’t just for those looking to take part in combat flight simulation, but also for those who enjoy GA or jet flying.

“With the feedback from our customers and professional pilots, our team has been working very hard on flight solutions for our customers for quite some time now.” said Hess Ghah, CEO at Next Level Racing in a press release provided to FSElite. Ghah continued by adding “We are excited to launch our first series of flight cockpits combining our F-GT and GTtrack cockpits with the combat flight pack making an excellent solution for customers who enjoy both racing and flight. Over the years, we have been very proud to have supplied flight cockpits to professional companies such as NASA®, Bristols University Department of Aerospace Engineering, British and Australian Air force cadets,Saitek® and many more that has given us great experience in the category of flight cockpits.”

Each product from Next Level Racing is built using high-quality materials, advanced construction techniques and also worldwide shipping using a huge number of distributors.

Honeycomb Bravo Throttle Quadrant Previews and Development Update

Honeycomb Bravo Controls Throttle (6)

Shared on Facebook earlier today, the Honeycomb Aeronautical team has shared a new set of photo previews of their upcoming Bravo Throttle Quadrant. Along with the previews, the team also gave a brief update in regards to the current production status and when simmers can expect it to release.

The team said that they have received the first Engineering Validation and Testing (EVT) sample direct from the production factory. According to the post, this means that the injection tool is complete. Going forward, the next steps for the team are to complete the Design Validation and Testing (DVT) and also pilot production. Honeycomb said that both of these should come in quick succession.

Whilst the new previews and current status are good news, there sadly also comes a production delay. Understandably, with the current global situation, production has been delayed by at least 2 – 3 months. This delay is the result of production capacity has had a major impact with slots more limited than before. Whilst this delay is unfortunate, the team assured the community that once a new schedule is confirmed, Honeycomb will inform us.

In the meantime, you can read our review on the Honeycomb Aeronautical yoke here.
