Stirling Delivers Active Control Technology to New Japanese Customer

Active Control Dual Rotary Throttle

11th September 2017

We are delighted to announce that Stirling has successfully delivered a high force stick and dual rotary throttle system to MHI (Mitsubishi Heavy Industries) in Japan via RealViz, our in-country partner. The stick and throttle system will be used to inform the development of the next generation Japanese Military Aircraft

The high force stick and throttle are part of Stirling’s family of active control products. These products are feature rich, highly reconfigurable and suitable for both single and dual cockpit configurations. The high force variants are unique, in that they can simulate a wide range of aircraft handling characteristics which can be reconfigured in real-time including side stick and ‘long-pole’ configurations.

On the successful delivery of the system, Gareth Vaughan, AMS Business Manager at Stirling, commented that: “Our exclusive partnership with RealViz for the Japanese product market is extremely important to us because it allows our product to be presented to, and compete in, one of the most technologically demanding markets in the world. We’re extremely pleased to deliver this latest order, which increases our profile in this market and has prepared the ground for further orders.”

The dual rotary throttle is the latest in Stirling’s range of active control products for fixed wing and helicopter simulators. We will be exhibiting our dual rotary throttle and high force sticks at DSEI 2017 (Stand S5-400) at the Excel in London from September 12th – 15th 2017.
