Create the ultimate flight simulator experience with the Gleim Virtual Cockpit™. The all-in-one simulator chassis was built specifically for flight simulation. 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.

No Compromise on Comfort

We made sure that you’ll be able to spend hours in the Virtual Cockpit captain’s chair without sacrificing comfort. Our seat is wider than the competition’s, with extra padding in the cushion and wide bolsters designed for a relaxed fit. The seat is covered with stain and water resistant vinyl which is both durable and will keep your seat looking great for years to come. You’re going to enjoy your flight simulation experience, whether you’re flying a short training flight around the pattern or a long haul international leg!

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.

Combined with the Gleim X-Plane Flight Training Course, the Gleim Virtual Cockpit is the premier pilot training solution.

Monitor Mounts

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 between 27 and 32 inches. Monitors with downward facing cable ports will ensure the best fit.
