Complete 737-800 cockpit - moving sale
« on: January 01, 2019, 11:01:21 AM »
For over 4 years I had such fun building/refurbishing my 737-800 cockpit. But I am moving to a smaller house as I retire without the space to set up my sim. I am letting it go for an incredible price of $55,000. Please note that this is only for the cockpit and does not include the visual screen / projectors or the computer rack system that drives the cockpit. I would let these go also but would need to charge full price since I will be building a much smaller sim and need these items at my new location. The cockpit itself is valued at over $150,000.
The cockpit major components are a refurbished 737-300 simulator built by one of the major well know simulator companies. It was used by the airlines for many years until I obtained it. The cockpit is a complete replica of the instruments and avionics of the 737 and built around the Sismo suite of hardware. It is Prosim based with P3D on the computers (2 computers only). There is no custom software, drivers or scripts required to run the device. The device is on a military grade frame assembly that is on rollers. I have moved it twice using a car carrier toe truck where they lower the bed and winch it up.
It includes  full linked yokes and rudders, fully adjustable rudder fore and aft travel, real IPECO seats (J-rails), a real TQ mechanized by Northern Flight Sim with my custom electronics package, full working toe breaks, and a thousand more items I can tell you about in a PM. The roof assembly is removable so that it can clear a garage door. The unit weighs about 2,000 lbs.
There are a minor set of things that need repair. I estimate repair cost at under $500 or DYI for much lower. The CAPT side includes a real OEM HUD that is only partially functional.
I am willing to trade for either a boat or RV. But please, not a trade for the $55k value but a trade more closely to the appraised value.
I am not willing to part it out, Please PM me for additional pictures and details. Located in Orlando FL.

Having seen this sim in person a few times,  I can say it is A+
