Provides great back support whilst using the rudder and allows me to view the nose of the aircraft. Only drawback is the buckle do come loose during bumpy rides and the back support slides out of place some times.June 2, 2019Purchased

Did not need both pillows but they do provide options. Pillows would not have stayed connected with the black strips provided (luckily not an issue for me.) Back pillow enabled firmer access to rudders.April 28, 2019Purchased

This cushion was the perfect solution. She can use just the backrest, just the cushion or both pieces, depending on what is needed. The cushion is firm, but comfortable, and is a nice thickness for our needs. We've only had it for a short time but it appears well made and I believe that it will last for a very long time.February 18, 2019Purchased

6 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat Cushion Slightly Not So Great ClaspThis is a great cushion which does exactly what you need it to do. Its biggest downfall is the clasps that hold the top to the bottom are fairly weak. They seem to pop off and this can cause them to shift slightly, not enough to be an issue during flight be noticeable.September 30, 2018Purchased

I am 5'4" and I was having experiencing some nausea while flying b/c my seat wasn't giving me enough elevation. Thank you Sportys! This product also helped me have a better feel of the rudder pedals. I no longer have to struggle to reach them and I can see the horizon perfectly! So much more enjoyable to fly. Must have!July 31, 2017

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 8 answersWhat FAA fire rating does this cushion have?Pilot's Elevator CushionDoes this cushion meet FAR fire standards?Pilot's Elevator CushionWill this work in a DA20 (or any plane with a stick instead of yoke)?BEST ANSWER: I'm the one who originally asked this question. I went ahead and bought the cushion, and it does work in a DA20 (notched seat for the stick between the knees), but I did have to position the back cushion on top of the bottom cushion for full range of movement with the stick.Are the cushions waterproof to any extent? Can they double as a float in case of a ditching?BEST ANSWER: They are not usable as a floatation device.
