    New 737NG Driver in Maryland

    Hi fellow flight simmers,



    At last, after so many years of desktop flight simming ( FS5.0 to present) I have decided to begin the construction of a 737 Simulator. One thing is for sure, this website is an awesome place to share the beauty of flight simming and meet new friends. I am very space limited but I will work my way around so I can satisfy the need for flying enjoying the nice views. Anyway, keep 'em flying and enjoy the ride.

    Respectfully,

    Pedro, ODYSSEY NG 737 simulator

    Here is a pic of what I've done so far:
    By the way I still working on the control colums and yokes, later.

    Hi Pedro and welcome to MyCockpit.org. Check out my website as I have dual linked control yokes and there is a heap of information on how i did it there. I also recommend the use of Dodiano's fibreglass yokes available from Innovative FS products, the are high quality at a good price too.

    Wow Pedro,

    That looks really nice so far.. I really like the seats... did you draw up any plans for those? If so would you be willing to share with a fellow builder..? I think they really sharp... Nice design...

    Jeff (Generic pit builder) Well...OK...it is a 737-717-CRJ but just like a mutt you really can't tell its ancestory..

    Hi there, let me see what I can do for you. I do not have plans for the seats, well I found a plan on the internet and I took some ideas from it and made my own design. The seat has to come apart anyway so I can use the parts as template to build the copilot's, while I do that I will try to take pics and measurements (including part angles) for you. Take care and thanks for the nice comments.

    Keep 'em flying and enjoy the ride.

  6. Thanks steveeverson, Sweetwater thanked for this post

    The original Boeing material for the seat cushions can be purchased from Spectra Aviation. $50 USD per yard. You'll need two.

    Hi,

    Sorry but I have not being able to make the plans for the seats. I will be using the one as a template, yep, I have to take it apart. Lately I have been busy and away from home and as soon as the temperature start to get to a higher "Flight Level" (humm, temp inversion?) I will start the project. Thank you for your interest, will let you know.

    Respectfully,

    Pedro.

    Keep 'em Flying and Enjoy the Ride
