New from ITRA is an Airbus joystick for both Captain & FO!  The stick is life size and also includes the corrcet buttons for communications and flight control. It comes available as a stick grip for the left captains side and a stick grip for the right co pilot side, and is to be installed simply onto a general Joystick! 

Flying with the real thing is always very important, but for many people it can be a bit of a challenge to get it just right – after all, they tend to be a bit more complex than your typical joysticks. This mod, though, simply sits on top of the original joystick that you use and can be adjusted and removed at any point you want to change up the joystick that you are using at the moment. If you are looking for an easy way to get access to the real thing and be able to fly an aircraft as it should feel, then you really do need to look into using this brilliant modification for your own joystick.

With two stick grips for pilot and co-pilot, you get all of the functionality that you need and also get to control all of the comms and flight controls from the added buttons. ITRA have created many useful projects over the years, and this one is no different. Because it can be attached so easily, this is the ideal choice for anyone who wants to have the authentic feeling of flying with a life-like recreation of the proper Airbus flight stick that so many have always wanted to be able to use for themselves.

It’s detail and design matches the real thing and even the functionality is provides is the same; if you want to have the simulation taking place on-screen as well as in your hands, then modifications likes this are just what you need to start pushing things forward and improving your overall flight style.

Many other ITRA modules exist at the moment, too, including various panel software packages that will make your overall flight capabilities far more effective. With more information and more detail on-screen, you can really put that Airbus joystick to good use and start learning all about how you would effectively fly using one of these. It’s fairly large size can make it a bit of a challenge to get used to at first, but many users have reported that it has actively improved their flight reactions and overall level of performance within the simulator that they use.

Getting to grips with the real instruments can be very useful for those who intend on moving from simulation into something a little bit more professional. The accuracy and control within the stick itself makes a big difference to making sure that you can start learning about them today. Rather than turning up with knowledge of a Logitech joystick or a keyboard & mouse, you’ll already be familiar with where many of the buttons should be and what features do what.

For most pilots, getting used to the wide ranging interface is the hardest part – this helps avoid that problem!
