    And this is not a joke.

    I have a project that involves obtaining seats for a C-130 simulator (and harnesses)

    Any Suggestions?

    Cockpit seats or troop seats (don't know what kind of simulator you are working on). Finding A/C seats can be very hard. I'm interested in your project, sounds very interesting, and right up my alley.

    *Could post a wanted ad here for free (after registration), to get someone's attention. Good site.

    * Coastal Aircraft Parts (not surplus they are flight ready parts$$$) but they do sell them

    *GovLiquidation.com but you would have to catch someone selling seats, which is a crap shoot.

    Any links?
    I'm even looking at movie props.
    FAA certification does not apply for my application, but has to have same controls and harnesses.

    call/email these guys, ask for Terry (if they still work there?). They sell parts and actually sell a lot to movie houses as props. If they don't have it, they will send u in the right direction much better than I could I'm sure.

    That's a good way to go about it as well. Wondering why you need c-130 seats specifically (just asking), I've flown many aircraft over the years and untold # of stressful hours in the sims, all the seats I've ever came across in the last decade or more were generally the same type seat with 5 point Y-type harness. I posted your request over on another aviation forum I belong to, waiting for some feedback as of yet. Happy hunting...

    Cockpit seating?
    Call the boneyard: Even if they don't have what you need, they should be able to help you find it.

    Google is your friend:

    How do I go about getting government surplus equipment?
