Volair Sim will be exhibiting at the 13th annual Great Lakes Aviation Conference in Ypsilanti, Michgan on January 25-26, 2013. We invite all of our current and prospective customers to come out and check us out. We plan to have the fully-configured Flight Sim cockpit for you to try out Volair Sim in action.
Example of Volair Sim Cockpit in action with the Logitech G27 wheel and paddle shifters. I really like the new Codemasters’ F1 2012 game. Awesome graphics and driving dynamics. The three monitor wrap-around really makes you feel like you are right there. I only wish the driver had more skillz 😉
BTW, I had my wife try to drive in 1st gear just to get her opinion and she said it felt so real, it made her nauseous. I guess this is what we were striving for (the realism that is, not getting people sick, lol).
So today was a F1 day at the Volair Sim. We mounted the Logitech G27 wheel/pedals, and shifter. I am pretty impressed with the G27 – for around $200 you get a very solid product with a very good force feedback. For the software, we used the 2012 F1 sim – quite nice as well. Only problem was the driver! Man, I my driving skills were rusty. In retrospect, I should have started with something more arcade-like.
So the Volair Sim is pre-configured for the Logitech G27 which means you can permanently mount the steering wheel, shifter, and the pedals with screws vs. the clamps. This will give you an ultra-secure, stable set-up although to be honest the clamps work pretty well. So if you thinking about switching between flight sim and racing, you may want to use the semi-permanent installation so you can switch between the two set-ups.
Let us know if you have any questions. Happy racing!
We really believe that Volair Sim offers the best combination of features for the money. So, we took some time and did, hopefully, an unbiased comparison between Volair Sim and some of the most popular and respected flight or racing sim chassis systems out there. Here is a summary of features, benefits, and pricing:
I think you will agree that Volair Sim, simply stated, has the best bang-for-the-buck ratio. It is also the only sim chassis out there that has been developed from the ground-up with the VFR or IFR pilot in mind. There are no compromises – you get all of the mounts and accessories standard. This, combined with the fact that Volair Sim is the ONLY flight chassis out there that is factory pre-drilled for Satek Pro Flight line of accessories allows you to build a very complete and capable flight set-up.
