About Mad Catz Saitek Aviator Flight Stick

A highly advanced combat joystick designed to enhance any flight simulation experience, the Aviator Flight Stick has been designed with an oversized flat base for increased stability and features three dedicated Fire Buttons, heavy-duty Combat Trigger and POV (point-of-view) Analog Stick as well as an innovative Throttle Lever positioned to suit ambidextrous gamers.

The Flight Sticks have been fully tested to work with the new Ubisoft combat flight simulator Tom Clancy's: HAWX.
