F-16 Flight Control Grip
Designed for the F-16 Falcon, this grip has widened its appeal among manufacturers and is becoming the choice for retrofits and upgrade packages. Equipped with a large 4- way switch, six pushbutton or mini 4-way switches, a trigger, and an autopilot override fingertip lever, the F-16 grip elevated Hands On Throttle-And-Stick (HOTAS) systems to the next level.
This is one of the few grips designed for side-arm control in the cockpit, as compared to between-the-leg controls.
Upgrade from B-8 control grip.
Ergonomic design reduces fatigue and improves response time between functions.
Cast from aluminum AMS-4218-T6.
Available with 37 pin connector base.
Complies with all appropriate MIL-Specs.
The top of the handle can be removed to access switches and wiring for maintenance.
Two-piece cast aluminum assembly eases switch replacement and maintenance.
Right-hand control grip design.
Engraving and marking available on all surfaces.
