    The Gauges Factory


    Finding resources for flight sim cockpit builders, which are within the budget of the masses, is a challenge to say the least. “The Gauges Factory” is just such a resource.

    The website offers gauges for the Cessna 172, Pilatus PC-12, Beechcraft Baron 58



    Gauges offered include:
    • Airspeed
    • Altimeter
    • Attitude
    • Engines
    • Navigation (NAV)
    • Variometer
    • Other gauges
    • Electronic Flight Systems
    • Radio (COM/NAV/ADF/XPDR)

    The gauges are designed to be used with FSX & FSUIPC/WideFS or XPlane & XPuipc/XPWideClient. This provides networkable gauges that equal or surpass the quality of commercial or payware counterparts. The website offers documentation for the offsets in FSUIPC in both PDF and HTML formats.



    Mycockpit.org member, Shawn, posted an article on 7/22/11 entitled “Single seat cockpit” showing a panel created using gauges from “The Gauges Factory.”



    Author Laurent makes his creations available for download at no charge, however; cockpit builders that find the gauges useful are encouraged to donate.
