It’s not known yet if resellers such as Aerosoft will also sell the throttle add-on.

In an email sent to customers who own Honeycomb Aeronautical’s Bravo unit, it has been confirmed that the Throttle Pack for Airbus A319 – A380 will release on April 19th 2021.

The email also confirmed that the throttles are open to pre-orders for customers prior to its April 19th 2021 release. What isn’t made clear is whether the release date is the day people can expect to receive them or when they’ll begin to ship.

The new Throttle Pack, which is designed to be used with the Bravo Throttle Quadrant (which is sold separately), includes 4 Airbus throttle modules and a new spoiler and flap mechanism.

When FSElite checked the official Honeycomb Aeronautical site, the product has already sold out. However, the email, seen by FSElite, confirms that the price of the Throttle Pack for Airbus A319 – A380 will be $69.99 (minus duties and import taxes). The product page hasn’t been updated with the release date and remains as Q2 2021.

Honeycomb Aeronautical recently revealed that production issues and shipping delays were impacting people getting both the Alpha and Bravo units, so it’s interesting to see how the new Throttle Pack will impact shipment to customers.

In other news, Honeycomb Aeronautical recently shared the idea of selling dust covers to protect your flight simulation hardware. You can read more about that here.
