Abstract : A translating rudder pedal system which includes a rudder pedal assembly and a reclinable, translationally moveable, seat operably connected to the pedal assembly, with both the pedal assembly and the seat mounted in a vehicle, such as an aircraft. The system ensures that, irrespective of the movement and positioning of the seat, the feet of the user seated in the seat always remain in contact with the control pedals of the rudder pedal assembly.
