Booster cushion

Does anyone know of anyone who could supply a purpose made cushion for a DA42?

There was an old thread on but that was a number of years ago now. I was working with a 42 previously and it had a purpose made booster by an aviation accessory company.

Any help greatly appreciated, cause I canít see out the front!

For my DA40, I bought some Confor energy absorbing foam, made a cutout for the stick (easy with a sharp knife), and got a local upholstery shop to cover it. You can buy it at glider shops, including the BGA

Custom cut to your specs then have it covered by an automotive shop.
