Spitfire MkIX

The Spitfire MkIX was the first aircraft supported by the freeware AuthentiKit project. with a spade grip flightstick launched on December 5th, 2020 after a two year period of R&D. During this time we received invaluable support from Alex Kassabian of Flying Iron Simulations who’s technical assistance helped make this flight stick so very close to the real thing. These Spitfire flight controls are compatible with all flight simulators. In particular our Discord community has active groups flying regularly in MSFS, IL2 and DCS using these controls. See gallery for community photos.
