I can locate just about everything I need to build the flightdeck execpt good, realistic crew seats. I spoke with a salesman today with Decrane - they have some great looking crew seats. One problem - $12,000 a pop. I have seen all the sites out there and seen some very realistic seats - where do you find them - help - please. Thanks.

I have seen some on Precision Flight Controls that look affordable. Less then $1,000 and look pretty good for me

HI
Just a thought.. I to will be faced with this problem and have looked at the airbus seats closely, I plan to build the frames/rests myself. I can do without all the electric componants Once completed they will go to a upholster's for cushioning, the fabrics look like they can be closely matched .If your build skills are up to it its worth considering and might be a lot cheaper

EDimensions do seats that have bass speakers in them so they vibrate etc if u have a roughly landing to simulate it!

Similar to Playstation gamepad vibrating when you die etc...

I suggest you look on line for aircraft salvage places. There are several around the country. They sell everything from engines to seats and I am sure you can pick up actual cockpit seating from these places for a very reasonable price. The seats may need some refurbishing but you should get them for very reasonable prices. I have also located a dealer that sells new crew seats at about $2,000 a piece. They look fantastic (check it out) www.keystoneaviation.com. A little pricy but if you want realism it is well worth the cost.

Here in the UK there are a couple of places currently offering A300 seats for a few hundred dollars the pair.
