    My generic cockpit update

    I started building a simpit using the dimensions from a Turbo Commander but I've soon realized that it works well for a number of different aircraft. I don't have a lot of working switches or buttons in the cockpit (there coming though) so any two seat side by side aircraft works equally as well as the other. I just wanted to share a couple of pictures showing the different aircraft I am currently flying.

    Carenado Mooney (having the option if FSUIPC to set axis/button assignments based on specific aircraft is fantastic, I can't say enough about that program.)



    Epic Lt from Lionheart Creations (this photo was taken before I installed the backup guages and autopilot, it's now my favorite aircraft to fly in the pit.



    The Turbo Commander



    Next, I will be putting the panel gauges together for the Aerosoft Beaver and installing a couple of lifejackets under the seats in the pit

    You can't have too many lifejackets aboard. And seat belts too!

    I'm one of the few that actually uses the five point harness in my sim. Then again, on several flights it's been required.

    Great shots Shawn and nice work.

    "I'm one of the few that actually uses the five point harness in my sim. Then again, on several flights it's been required. "

    A harness should be standard equipment on my simulator, for the same reason I'm guessing. My flight attendant (wife) tends to mix me double's instead of singles even when she knows it's going to be a tough approach...

    That's the reason!

    No, No Trevor, do I take it from your signature image you've been coaxed to the dark side?!!

    Sean great to see the GA world well represented and in capable hands.
