The Gleim Virtual Cockpit is now available as a complete system with a high performance computer, (3) 27" monitors, flight yoke, rudder pedals, the simulator chassis, and all hardware.
Create the ultimate flight simulator experience with the Gleim Virtual Cockpit™. While the all-in-one simulator chassis is built specifically for flight sims, it is also great for racing sims and gaming, and can even be used as a computer workstation. The sports car style seat has multiple positions and reclines for maximum comfort. The heavy-duty steel-frame construction provides stability and durability. The triple-monitor mount is standard, providing the ultimate panoramic experience. The seat, monitor arms, and trays are adjustable so you can customize the setup to create the most realistic experience possible.
Note: Flight simulation software is not included. X-Plane 11 is preloaded as a demo, however, you must purchase X-Plane 11, or the X-Plane Flight Training Course Private Pilot Set to unlock the full version.
Designed by Pilots, for Pilots
The airplane is not always the best classroom. Operating under controlled conditions, the Gleim Virtual Cockpit™ is the ideal training solution for both VFR and IFR students. Flight schools, colleges and universities, and schools with STEM programs can also use the Virtual Cockpit to enhance training programs, saving students time and money, while creating safe, competent pilots. Well-prepared students are more likely to complete their training and recommend flight training to others.
The Gleim Virtual Cockpit™ creates the ultimate flight simulation experience for training with the Gleim X-Plane Flight Training Course.
Compatible with a variety of peripherals from Saitek, CH, Logitech, Thrustmaster, Fanatec, and more.
- Articulating tray table is designed to easily attach peripherals such as yokes, flight sticks, racing wheels, and accessories with pre-drilled mounting holes.
- An easily removable center tray can securely hold a joystick.
- Side tray is designed to hold a throttle quadrant, trim wheel, mouse, or other accessories.
- Articulating foot or pedal tray supports a variety of pedals.
Powerful Computer System
The computer system is purposely designed to allow for triple display* (or quad display) flight simming on three (or four) 1080P displays. The high performance PC meets or exceeds all of the recommended system requirements for X-Plane, which is our recommended flight simulation software. It also does a great job at running Prepar3D and FSX!
Mass storage is typically the bottleneck in just about every system. So, how do we reduce this bottleneck? We do this by including a 500GB SSD (solid state drive). An SSD is many times faster than a conventional hard drive. This results in Window loading in half the amount of time and X-Plane loading 50% faster.

Fly commercial and private planes as a beginner or advanced pilot with a true simulation yoke and quadrant in your hands. Develop the muscle memory and experience the feeling of precise, realistic control.
The Logitech G Flight Yoke System with included Throttle Quadrant features five total axes, stainless steel elevator and aileron control shaft, and 25 fully programmable buttons and switch positions. The yoke system is the hero of flight simulation and part of a complete, balanced setup.
Pro-grade Flight Rudder Pedals add a critical facet of the pilot experience to your flight simulation setup. Control the rudder and toe brakes of your aircraft with your feet—just like the real deal.
These feature self-centering pedals with adjustable damping. Elevate your level of in-sim airplane precision with full-featured Flight Rudder Pedals. The Rudder Pedals' fluid motion enables accurate command over your aircraft, while differential braking provides independent control of the left and right toe brakes.
Pro-Grade Throttle Quadrant
The Flight Throttle Quadrant allows for precise control. All levers are fully programmable and detachable, so you can configure any combination of throttle, flaps, mixture or propeller pitch. Just arrange lever knobs in the configuration that works best and assign commands from your favorite sim. The levers' detents—physical markings indicating where a certain action takes places—simplify control of your plane's idle and reverse thrusters.
The floor space required will depend on the configuration and size of monitors used.
- Using (3) 27" monitors requires approximately 72" width.
- Length is adjustable from 55" to 72".
- Minimum height is 47" from the floor to top of seat.
Monitor mounts are designed with standard 75 × 75 mm and 100 × 100 mm square hole patterns for M4 screw attachments to mount your display. These are commonly found on computer monitors and TV screens weighing up to 30 lbs. We recommend monitors up to 32 inches. Universal adapter brackets are available for displays requiring nonstandard or larger brackets.
Assembly tools and hardware such as bolts, nuts, washers, and hex keys are included. Printed step-by-step instructions are included with a supplemental online video. Assembly takes approximately 30 minutes.
