Abstract : An aircraft throttle simulator comprises throttle lever which extend upwardly from spheres fractionally clamped between plates. The levers are constrained for movement in a pattern allowing for forward movement from an idle position to a full throttle position, a lateral shift from the full throttle position, and forward movement to an afterburner position. A linkage is provided to connect each lever to a linear transducer to provide a position signal.
