Snakebyte group has announced Honeycomb Aeronautical, a new brand of flight simulation hardware. With the first products expected to ship this summer, the range is designed to offer authentic flight simulation products, suitable for both enthusiasts and students training for a pilot license.
Designed and developed by pilots and flight engineers in California, Honeycomb Aeronautical has engineered the range using genuine aerospace components and the same internal mechanics used in premium certified simulators approved by the FAA for flight training use.
Each product in the range is designed to function alone or can be combined with other products in the Honeycomb range to function as a full cockpit simulation. In addition, Honeycomb have designed their range to work alongside components from other flight simulation manufacturers, negating the need to begin building their cockpit anew.
Nicki Repenning, CEO of snakebyte USA explained: “Simulation in an area of keen interest for us at snakebyte. We believe there is huge potential for further innovation in the field and we’re excited to introduce a new brand to enthusiasts and aspiring pilots which we believe will stand for unparalleled quality and innovation.“
The first product in the Honeycomb Aeronautical range is: Alpha Flight Control – Yoke & Switch Panel – SRP: $169.99. Manufactured from aerospace grade components, the Yoke & Switch Panel is a multi-purpose Yoke & Switch Panel, compatible with all major flight simulation software. All steel shaft with metal mechanical movement provides full 180° yoke movement. It features four buttons, four two-way switches & one, eight-way hat switch, offering an avionics switch panel with master, alternator, avionics and light switches. The Yoke & Switch Panel includes a mounting bracket compatible with Honeycomb panels as well as products from other flight simulation manufacturers.
