Honeycomb Aeronautical Announces Airbus Throttle Pack
May 12, 2020
Simulator hardware manufacturer Honeycomb Aeronautical has announced the first addon Throttle Pack for their forthcoming Bravo Throttle Quadrant, focused on Airbus' fleet.
Ranging from the dual throttle levers for buses as small as the A319 and up to the largest in the European aircraft-maker's fleet, the A380, the announcement post on Facebook says that the pack will cater for all aircraft in between.
Two- and four-engine configurations are included, with an additional two handles for speedbrakes and flaps, attaching to the relevant sections of the company's currently in-development Bravo Throttle Quadrant.
Auto-throttle disconnect buttons represented on the edge levers are fully operational, as are the reverse thrust levers. It was also confirmed that the flap lever will have a working lock release function.
The Throttle Pack for Airbus A319 - A380 expands Honeycomb's in house product line to four, with the Alpha Flight Controls being the only product available to the public, having begun pre-orders in August 2019. The next product due is the Bravo Throttle Quadrant, although this has been delayed significantly, with the company most recently citing COVID-19 as one of the reasons behind the product's lateness.
Once news emerged that FlightSimExpo 2020 was cancelled in early April, the company unveiled the Charlie Rudder Pedals as their third product, though little more than a teaser was shown.

Threshold encourages informed discussion and debate - though this can only happen if all commenters remain civil when voicing their opinions.
