I promised to keep you all updated on our first motion sim project, so here are 2 video's we made recently.

The Platform will accomodate a projection dome, full 737 shell, instructors cabin and a balcony.

Over the next few weeks we will be placing the shell and instructors cabin..


The sim is being custom build  for Simsensation (www.simsensation.nl).

Simsensation will be using this sim for both training professionals but also for renting to the casual simmer. More information on simsensation on their website: www.simsensation.nl

Simsensation is located at Lelystad Airport, right next to the Aviodrome Museum, location of the yearly FSweekend Event.

The 6 DOF platform is manufactured by MOOG.

Moog is one of the market leaders in the motion industries and its platforms are being used in level-D sims from CAE and FlightSafety International.

More information on MOOG and their motion solutions can be found here:

Off subject but I like the last two pictures....out of an "Alien" moovie. Big black monster arm holding the platform. Those cranes are amazing.
Nice project.

Stef, this is absolutly Beautiful.  Is the Platform a 3 phase setup? Or just standard single Phase 220?  What an amazing piece of kit.

              Another update on the motion project....just a few pictures.


              Shell placed on the motion platform, instructors cabin is finished. The sim will take 2 pilots in the shell and 2 people in the instructor cabin. Started building the structure for the projection dome.




The back of the instructorscabin with the balcony. The balcony will have air stairs.




Looking in from the back with the 2 Ipeco's + J-rails just fitted. Interiors are partially fitted.





A view from the front. Sorry for the bad quality, taken with my phone.
ICS interface system and gauges have been fitted. The ICS interface is modular and eliminates the need for wiring switches, annunciators, etc. Very failsafe this way and the modular system is perfect for maintenance.




Captains side. Ipeco seat with j-rails fitted. This is the newer electrically adjustable model, an option on the 737. It can be adjusted manually and electrically. Same seats are used on the 747/400.
Interiors are partially fitted.





First Officers Office:




Close up on the interior trim






Panels, glareshield and glarewings fitted.

OK, another small update:

The instructors cabin is spray painted and waiting for its logo:



Last work being done under the hood. When all is done, the windows will be fitted and the dome will be closed. There is an accesdoor to the dome for maintenance.



Part of the instructors cabin. 2 seats will be fitted + the instructors station (touchscreens). Its quite spacey for 2 persons.



view from the captains seat. Screens, gauges and ics system fitted. Only the MCP PRO needs to be placed.





Some close up shots. We are detail freaks, so all kinds of screws are fitted. Diferent sizes, some countersunk, etc. Not all functional, other than wanting to replicate the exact look of the real panels.











Close up of the overhauled IPECO's with new J-rails:






Plug and play pedestal. All modules functional, including the mic selector panel, the firepanel, cargo fire panel, radar panel, stab trim panel and even the lighting panel and the door/trim panel.
More news about the new plug and play modules soon.







Uhmmmm dont know what this is.....you didnt see it ;-)

Looks like a ...uhmmm.... other  ICS thingy: No more wiring, looks sooo CLEAN !





Its not finished yet, knobs need to be fitted, dark filters for the displays, annunciators need to be fitted and the aluminium caps on the honeywell switches need to be replaced by white caps (yes the real locking honeywells are fitted).
When that is done it will be fitted in the sim. Plug and play, just one usb plug and a power line.



functional valve gauge:

Simply stunning Stef.

Probably one of the many overlooked features in a simulator is the sound system. Can I ask what you will be using and where the speakers will be housed.

Keep up the great work.
