Spitfire MkIX

Our first Authentikit product. Released 05-12-2020.

The iconic Spitfire MkIX spade grip flight stick.

Spitfire MkIX

The first aircraft supported by our freeware AuthentiKit project with a spade grip flightstick launched on December 5th, 2020 after a two year period of R&D. 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. Controls are compatible with all flight simulators and our Discord community has groups flying regularly in MSFS, IL2 and DCS.

Spitfire Chassis Lever

This chassis or landing gear leader is a joy to use. Of course you could press ‘G’ on the keyboard, but how much better to release the lever from it’s lock state and push against the hydraulic resistance built into this replica flight control to raise or lower the landing gear.
