Mason Controls

MASON control gripThe Mason controls team at Esterline Control Systems offers world-class control devices and subsystems — such as control grips, throttles, and HaWC unmanned system controllers — for today’s advanced cockpits, military vehicles, and other specialized applications.

Most Mason grips, throttles, cyclics, and other control products are custom designs created to satisfy a particular set of customer needs. Our standard configurations serve primarily as a starting point.

Our controls stand out from the competition with thoroughly engineered designs, integrating human factors, embedded software, environmental ruggedness, and more.
