A control stick simulator for use in a part task trainer for pilots utilizes a bending beam in cooperation with deflection sensing transducers to output pitch and roll commands. The control stick is a cantilevered metallic beam, arrested by stops in a mounting flange near a handgrip at its upper end, thereby presenting an isometric feel to the pilot.
