Hey guys - name is Randy.. I'm a private pilot with an instrument rating. Lucky enough to have an uncle that is a safety inspector for the FAA.. He's got type ratings for 767, 737, MD11, ATR42.. you name it.. so anyway, I saw the norwegian 737 project guy, and got really pumped. I just started. Got a lot of overhead parts from opencockpits. I'm scared as heck that I bit this off, but I'm looking forward to the journey.

FYI - Lexington KY is home.

Hey Randy,

Welcome to the party!

You're a Lexington native...I know your neck of the woods...lol. I was born and raised in Newport... Now, I am a Wisconsinite since moving into this state back in 1991.

If you want to gain some quick hands on knowledge, you need to road trip up to Indy and visit Rob; he'll likely chime in here. He is one of the closest builders near you.

John

Edit: I made a typo in my original post, fixed it today.

Howdy from Houston, Texas! Hahaha (I was required to say something like that- right?) :huh:
I'm Kurt, 55.. 5 types, flew a lot of Corporate and 135 before getting fortunate enough to work in the training department for a Regional Airline 18+ years and now work as a simulator Pilot Examiner. Actually nice to come home most every night. Sometimes being on the road gets a little old.  :o
So amazing what all of you guys are able to do with these builds! Truly incredible the wide variety of knowledge, expertise and skill sets you guys share! I was drawn in recently to this "disease" due to the increasing realism of the newer simulation programs and once I joined and started reading what you guys were doing, it really got me wanting to join in and have a go at it.
Really look forward to learning and reading more. Seriously good stuff!
Thanks for letting me into the group!

Kurt,
   Just curious where in Houston you are.  I'm here in Houston as well.  If you need a hand or guidance with anything I'm here to assist.  I just started developing my 3rd 737 sim so I have some experience.   

Like you I flew corporate 91 and 135 and have been flying 737's for the local major here in KIAH.

Here's my email if u need anything.   MLeavy737@aol.com

Welcome to the club:)

Hey Randy "Air up there"! Great to learn about a fellow builder in the "general vicinity" LOL. I'm in Cincinnati, so pretty close for such a global hobby! I'm working on an ERJ145 sim. Been working on it a long time - as long as you have "the bug" it will keep you going - I think we all can attest to it here!
Let me know whenever you want to chat, maybe we can meet as well since we're so close!
Good luck with your project!

Ruben J.

40+ yrs old, From Michigan USA, generic 737 ish build. Private Pilots Single Engine land and IFR rating...(not current). This is is my first foray into building although I've been simming since MS2 (or was it 3). I ended up here in desperation. Bought a used Hispa panels MCP of fb for use with XP 11 and am thoroughly lost.

Hello all, new member here. My name is Bill and I'm located in the U.S. (southern Indiana).  I've been simming since the early 90s, with MS4 and have had every release since.  Currently I'm using P3D.  I started building in 2009 with an Akers-Barnes simpit.  Since then I've been building and modifying to replicate the F-14B cockpit.

Hello all. My name is Aaron. I'm from Illinois, US. I've been on and off into sims since the stick figure days. I'm currently on P3D v4 with a 2 computer setup with the server as cockpit with 5 touchscreen monitors for multiple airplanes and the client with 3 projectors with a THTGo for my visuals. I am almost finished with ground school towards getting my PPL.

Hello all,
my name’s Michael, I'm 35 and I'm based in Warsaw, Poland.
I've been flying as a private pilot on a C152, C172 and a DA20 for 6 years now. In February, this year I completed my ATPL theoretical exams and now I'm doing all the practical training to get my CPL. Currently I'm doing the instrument rating. Just finished the 35h simulator part and I'm on to doing the 15h on a piper arrow PA28. Hoping to get it all done by mid 2019 and get a job in aviation.
In my short experience as a pilot I realized that a home simulator is a great means to improving your knowledge and practice the so-called "muscle memory" for the devices your using on board a real plane. Thus, my goal is to make my home cockpit’s functionality as realistic as possible to the real thing.
Hopefully with your help I'll be able to achieve that goal.

Mike

Hey,

I'm Paul, 32 years old from South Carolina in the US.  I'm a newcomer to both Cockpitbuilders.com and flight sim.  I just started my first cockpit build and while I've only managed to interface a single toggle switch using SimVim with the Zibo 737, I'm excited for my First  ;) build.  I've already received help and guidance from members that have set me on my way for a long, but fun build.  Very thankful for the site and it's knowledgeable members.

Thanks,
Paul

Hi to all.
My name's Marcin. I'm 37.5 years now ;) Came from Poland, but actually live in Northern Ireland. Brexit's on the way so don't know how it will be later...
Aviation is my hobby since I was a child. I was reading a lot of datasheets from many airplanes. Mostly military types.
Flying Sims are interesting for me, but through so many years I've managed to fly a little on "F-18 Interceptor" on Amiga 500, "Flight 727" on Commodore 64, couple of take-offs and landings in FW-190 & B-17 in "Warbirds" on P200MMX, and now take-offs, short flights and landings with trying to figure out gauges on desk of Beechcraft Baron and Learjet 45.
Also I've bought Saitek Yoke with throttle, USB Throttle and Rudder Pedals to expand my experience from simple joystick. Everything's connected to one PC with (as for now) one monitor. Small desk was already modified for this setup. Now I want to move forward and build generic simpit for twin engine airplane. It mustn't replicate any plane. The biggest inspiration for me with front panel is Polish airplane EM-11 Orka.
In this place was intended link to website with description, but unfortunately this website is saying about error 403 and attack of trojan (polish letters in link are on the way, I've checked it right now ;)
This airplane is beautiful for me. Too bad that no one created a model for FS9. I'd like to recreate most of cockpit as simpit. You're feeling like You're sitting in a car, not an airplane.
Also this simulator setup is intended for a child who's always saying that she'll be a pilot :) and for me to enjoy a little free time.
What else I can add about myself?
I'm a fan of an old computers (Commodore 64, Amiga with OCS/ECS Chipset, ZX Evolution, Spectrum Sprinter, IBM PC XT Clones and too much more to mention that I'll pass with it ;) ).
I'm adding two photos of this small desk without and with front panel mockup. Now I'm waiting for more free time to start making measurements and cutting components from junk which I have (cutting costs are the most important ;)
