Hello from Chicago
« on: January 08, 2017, 04:59:19 PM »
Hello everyone.  My name is Eric. 51 yrs old. I live in the suburbs of Chicago. I  love flying .  I have been bitten by the flightsim bug since the early days of MSFS. I too started out as a desktop pilot but have since taken the leap to build a scale or somewhat of one, 737-800.  Ive started this project in Dec 2015 with my first cockpitsimparts Captains panel.  Since then my project has grown to this current set up.  Still learning, and doing a lot of research, but that's what makes this hobby such fun that it is... I have lots of questions so I am hoping some of you can help me so I can build my pit the best that I can.

Keep your eyes to the Sky.

Hello Eric and welcome.

I am in Sugar Grove.   We are practically neighbors.    Glad to have another local 737 builder.   Happy to meet some time.
