Not sure I'm at the right place to do this; however, I'll give it a shot and see where it leads.  My name is Gil Lusk.  I'm a newcomer to this website.  Found it through a link on FlightSim.com.

I've had a passion for flight simulation ever since Microsoft introduced version 5.  It's the same passion I have always had for airplanes.

My dream is to build a cockpit based on Convair's 580 turboprop.  I've bought a Convair's complete MIP, 2 of the airplane's throttle quadrants, the control columns and rudder pedals.  Now, I have to come up with the cockpit to house all this stuff.  I have a long way to go.

My day job is managing a family-owned automotive collision repair center in Knoxville.  Even then my thoughts are never far from flight simulation.

Thanks for allowing me to come on board!

Hi there

I'm relatively new to this whole cockpit building business, despite having watched my father build several ever-more ambitious home flight simulators over the years. And it's actually that which brings me here; searching out further knowledge, as his hobby has altered the direction of our family business (originally refrigerated container controller repairs) into flight sim gear instead, which suddenly finds me lacking in years of crucial know-how! So here I am, mostly to soak up knowledge, although I'll endeavour to be of some use wherever I can ...

To make this introduction of more interest to actual cockpit builders however, my father's simulator (on-going project) is an ATR 72-500 and there's a blog in my signature which details it's progress.

I look forward to being a part of this community.

Cheers,
Dean.

Checking in.

I've been building since 2005, first an F-16, now substantially complete, and lately a Spitfire (which started as a MkIX but has morphed into a MkII). Variously known as Killratio, Tony Hill and DarrylH.

Glad to be here,


Darryl

Hi all
My name is Ian Epton, I am 38 years old, I am married with three children and live in Lincolnshire, England. I started flight simming in 1995, and its been a passion of mine ever since. I started to build a 737NG flightdeck in my garage about 18 months ago. Its been a slow project due to being at university for the past year, but I have now graduated and I plan to get stuck back into building the sim. I have limited joinery, electrical, and computer programming skills, so this project is going to be challenging. I resided myself to the fact that it's going to be an exact replica of a 737 by any imagination, but Im happy with it so far. I am currently building the shell which is turning out ok I think!
I am looking forward to chatting to all of you talented Cockpit builders. I will post some pics of my sim once I have worked out how! lol. Looks like the site is going to be a great one.
Ian

Hey guys, is this the best kept secret or what?  No one told me you were all here and not "there".  Wasn't till I got a link from Gwyn (Aerosim) that I saw this.  Anyway thought I'd join and say hello.  A new cockpit building site goes very nicely with a new pit build.  Some might remember me building my PC12 but I've ventured out and up to the beautiful B777.  Thanks to Gwyn at Aerosim Solutions, I'm getting a pro 777 throttle quad and MIP's made.  Looking at using Sim Avionics across a multi-PC network for full systems replication.  I hope to keep you posted as to progress and continued inspiration.

Hey Ken. 

Glad to see you here..  I would have to say that your not that late :)  Only been in operation since late August.  Never the less we have quite the group here, and most importantly, we have a blast.

Thanks for dropping by.  I am glad to see you will be using some of the stuff you learned from the PC12 and implementing it into you 777.  I can't wait to see your pictures.

Best regards,

Trev

Hey Ken,

Good to see you over here.  Funny....I dropped my Mustang and went with Sim-Avionics and the 737 and now you are dropping the PC12 and going for the 777.   Cant wait to see how your build progressess.

Best regards,
Scott

Sorry to be late greeting you...welcome here, and to Boeing building.
Just curious, what is the size of the room/building where the big bird will nest?

Jack I'm hoping to fit it into my current room size of approx. 3.1m x 3.1m.  Might be a bit ambitious particularly considering I'm planning to use a projector for outside viewing.  All will become clear once the base and MIP stand starts to come together.  Obviously I won't be able to create the full enclosure.  If all else fails I have a large garage available.

Go for the garage...the 777 front office is around 12ft wide (4m)

Hi all, my name is Jose and I am from Portugal. I have started a 737 project and currently I am building the MIP. Draw it and had it laser cut. That's how it all started. A couple of years have gone since then. Despite many hours of labour virtually nothing is done. Great hobby, great site, it is an incredible opportunity to share knowledge.

Howdy!

By way of introduction, I'm new to serious pit building, but a long time flight sim'er.  I've been using MS Flight Sim since version 2 and have owned nearly every version since.  I've also experimented with x-plane.  29 years ago I completed ground school and started logging hours towards my private pilots license.  Then life took me in other directions and I hadn't logged another hour until this year when my wife booked me an hour with a CFI as a Birthday gift.  By the way, even with a 29 year gap it really comes back very quickly.  Now I'm trying to figure out if I can afford the long term commitment to go back and start chasing my license again.

In the interim I joined a virtual ATC group and started building out my desktop pit with the hope of someday stumbling across that rare find, a real fuselage to build on that was in usable condition but affordable.  Well, I didn't get far before a stroll through e-bay found me bidding on a 172 fuselage with only minimal airframe damage.  It sold for the cost of the scrap metal so it was a sweet deal, and here I am.

I have a background in electrical and electronic engineering, as well as audio engineering.  I'm fairly mechanical, have some electrical and mechanical prototyping and fabrication experience, and I have just a little programing experience.

What I hope to accomplish a 172RG like pit.  From their I may make a few of the panel sections interchangeable to allow for twin engine simulation.  But initially I'll be happy to get the basic 172 up and running.

I'm looking forward to reading and learning here.  It seems commercial aircraft are the more popular pits, but I'm also hoping to find more GA builders as well.  I've already met a few on line that have accomplished something similar to what I want to do and have raised the bar very high...  Looking forward to reaching for it.

Welcome Aboard Tom

Wether it is GA, Heavy metal, real or sim, this is a full house of Aviation nuts.
You are obviously part of that crowd.
Go for a light twin right away, not much more work Simwise just an extra set of gauges , but a big plus in performance, possibilities and pilot challenge .
Our instruments cost basically nothing so go for full IFR panels.
My 2¢ as a pilot if not as a Sim builder.
