A joystick is an input device consisting of a stick that pivots on a base and reports its angle or direction to the device it is controlling.
A joystick, also known as the control column, is the principal control device in the cockpit of many civilian and military aircraft, either as a center stick or side-stick. It often has supplementary switches to control various aspects of the aircraft’s flight.
