Increasing View Over G1000 Panel

One of our customers, John, has installed the Garmin G1000 panel and wanted to improve the view over the panel.

Here is what John says,  “I have your flight sim cockpit – only problem I have is being too short!  The seat is too low overall for me (I have to sit on a pillow!) so I added a 22mm spacer under the seat.”

The 22mm spacer was not quite enough so John continued to experiment. 

John writes, “I modded the seat supports with 3″ aluminum spaces from McMaster-Carr (also kept the 22mm TV mount spacers just in case – didn’t want to have to disassemble the seat twice). Solid as a rock and much better for me than before the mod.”
