Pilot's seat

Pilot's Seat
We're looking at the cockpit, if you will, of the Demoiselle #20. And here is the canvas seat that the pilot would sit in. It's simply a piece of canvas that's laced to the sides of the lower bamboo poles. No safety belts in this airplane. And you would just make yourself as comfortable as you could in there. There were a couple of little stirrups up front for your feet to rest on. But that was all there was to the seat.
