Having initially unveiled their buzzed-about new concept to the community at Flight Sim Expo in San Diego in late 2021, Thrustmaster has now pulled back the curtain and released their full line of flight sim peripherals officially licensed by Boeing.
Following their first highly successful collaboration with the legendary aerospace company, with the launch of the replica F/A-18C Hornet™ HOTAS Add-On Grip, Thrustmaster is now applying full throttle to this partnership with one of the world’s largest and best-known aerospace manufacturers by releasing its TCA Boeing Edition range.
With the arrival of three new Boeing-licensed products for Xbox and PC, Thrustmaster — the world’s leading manufacturer of flight sim accessories — is proud to now offer two different yet fully complementary licensed product lines dedicated to civil aviation, adding to their 2021 release of a full line of Airbus-licensed flight controls.
An exciting new flagship endeavor for Thrustmaster, the TCA Boeing Edition range features unique, exclusive, and proprietary technologies integrated with a specific goal in mind: allowing users to replicate the controls, flight kinematics and sensations experienced by real Boeing pilots at the controls of a Dreamliner — right from the comfort of their favorite desk or table. This previously inaccessible yet highly aspirational world of civil aviation is now within reach for the entire flight sim community.
The TCA Yoke Boeing Edition is a 1:1 scale ergonomic replica of the world-famous Dreamliner range of Boeing’s civil aviation business. The legendary hardware represents Thrustmaster’s very first yoke system and so is a truly revolutionary leap forward that completely changes the game for flight sim novices and experts alike.
Built around the idea of making a brand-new flight simulation experience possible for users, the product accurately reproduces the sensations of a floor-mounted Boeing pendular yoke for simmers using their gear on a desk or table with a 100% metal internal pendular system.
Much more than a sidekick to the TCA Yoke Boeing Edition, the TCA Quadrant Boeing Edition plays its own important role in this brand-new flight simulation experience. Developed as an ergonomic replica of the legendary Boeing throttle quadrant, the unit incorporates all of the iconic features required for proper piloting of airliners, as well as more modest private airplanes.
TCA Quadrant Boeing Edition is the first throttle quadrant to offer a complete, functional autopilot system with three different parameters, inspired and approved by Boeing: Altitude management, Airspeed management, and Heading management.
With 3 axes and 17 action buttons plus an encoder for very extensive mapping possibilities both on the ground and in the skies, TCA Quadrant Boeing Edition stands out thanks to its unique progressive-resistance feel — just like on real Boeing airliners.
Highly versatile, the throttle quadrant features 4 fully swappable levers, allowing for use of the aircraft’s speed brake, flaps or thrust levers, depending on the circumstances. Users also have the option to pair 2 units together and step up to a whole new level of piloting: 6-axis flight.
Plug-and-Play compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator and X-Plane on PC, the replica Boeing flight sim hardware is further evidence of Thrustmaster’s continued expertise in the category. The manufacturer has honed its skills and developed a unique level of know-how in the world of flight simulation, cementing its reputation as one of the global leaders in this high-tech sector.
For pilots who want to take their sim piloting to an authentic level, the TCA Yoke Pack Boeing Edition brings all of this gear together in one bundle under $500. It is available now as a single bundle or as individual parts:
