In anticipation of Microsoft’s new Flight Simulator, Thrustmaster has unveiled “licensed by Airbus” gear that’s perfect for proper plane geeks. The new brand, TCA or Thrustmaster Civil Aviation, includes a modular sidestick, dual thrust lever throttle with add-on modules, an Officer bundle pack and new metal desk clamp. It’s meant to provide an even more life-like experience for civil aviation simulators like X-Plane 11 and Flight Simulator.

The flagship product is the TCA Sidestick Airbus Edition, a PC joystick and ergonomic replica of the Airbus sidestick (A320/A320neo type, 1:1 scale). The modular design includes 12 remappable buttons. The built-in throttle axis includes a thrust reverser function, a unique feature of real aircraft, and users can rotate the handle to control the rudder. The sidestick will cost $69.99 (£64.99 / €69.99) and be available beginning June 25th.

Thrustmaster is also releasing the TCA Quadrant Airbus Edition which replicates Airbus throttle controls (A320neo type). That will arrive in September and cost $99.99 ((£89.99 / €99.99). Users who want both the TCA Sidestick and TCA Quadrant can opt for the TCA Officer Pack Airbus Edition bundle, available in September for $159.99 (£149.99 / €159.99). And if you’re going all out, you might as well throw in the TM Flying Clamp (£54.99 / $69.99 / €59.99). Also arriving in September, the metal clamp will make your setup that more lifelike and ensure proper ergonomics.

All of the gear is available for pre-order now.
