Management 'Transition' at Honeycomb Aeronautical?


On February 5, three posts appeared on the Honeycomb Aeronautical homepage; they included a statement that the company has "transitioned to new management" and separately that the Charlie Rudder Pedal orders will be shipped on June 24. 


The posts sparked more questions than answers for a brand that has produced some of flight simulation's most popular flight control hardware and has been an FSA Partner and FlightSimExpo supporter for several years.

Separately this week, Threshold released an exclusive interview with Honeycomb Founder Nicki Repenning, who has represented Honeycomb at FlightSimExpo. The interview was conducted before these three posts appeared on the Honeycomb website, but still offers interesting background on the current situation.


We're following the news about Honeycomb and will continue to report on developments in this weekly newsletter.
