The Best Flight Simulator Yokes (2019)

101 views

A flight simulator can offer a very valuable tool before, during and after flight training. You have a choice between many different hardware options, ranging from simple joysticks to complex table-mounted flight simulator cockpits and panels. One thing to really enhance your flight simulator experience is a yoke. But which model to buy? Well, we've got you covered with this guide!

The market currently offers many different great flight simulator yoke options. Brands such as Logitech, CH Products and recently Honeycomb have created some very nice products to help you get the most out of your flight training.

People might argue it doesn't matter whether you use a joystick or yoke with your flight simulator, as you will never get the real feeling of flying a plane. Although that might be the case in some way, we believe a flight simulator yoke still offers plenty of added value when using a flight simulator as a training aid.

Below, we have listed some of the most popular flight simulator yokes on the market, each with their own advantages.

The Best Flight Simulator Yokes

1. Logitech Pro Flight Yoke

The Logitech Pro Flight Yoke (formerly built by Saitek) is probably one of the most popular and widely-used flight simulator yokes available today. It offers a beautiful design, and a separate throttle quadrant that's extendable for use with multi-engine aircraft.

The Yoke offers a realistic feeling and has a nice LED display for showing and interacting with convenient flight timers.

I personally used and still use this flight simulator yoke during my own flight training, and I love it!

2. Honeycomb Alpha Flight Sim Yoke

The Honeycomb Alpha Yoke is one of the newer models on the market today. It features rotating switches on the yoke, as well as a full switch panel to control anything from avionics to lights.

What's cool about this yoke? Not only does it feature lots of realistic switches, there's also adjustable cockpit backlighting built-in!

All these extra features do come at a price, with the Honeycomb yoke being the most 'expensive' on in this list, retailing for just under $250. We haven't had a chance to try it ourselves, but looking at some YouTube videos and reviews, it does seem very promising!
