    Re: A Boeing or Airbus simulator?

    Hi, After reading the article,
    I find myself thinking why is someone building a b737 or a Airbus,
    Is it because when you know how to program the computers it will fly on its one?

    Re: A Boeing or Airbus simulator?

    I thought it was pretty good article. The one addendum to your post Kermit would be the age of the equipment. The Boeing equipment while having the ability to fly on it's own is there as it's an older let's say "Standard" where you could fly manual if you wanted to. The newer Airbus pretty much manual drive isn't an option. There are a number of redundancies to make sure flight is safe. They back up the mostly electronic nature of the aircraft.

    On the one side you have a larger core of users for Boeing has been around longer and therefore there is a great depth of background info. Harder to convert a real cockpit as it's so non digital to Airbus. Where they are newer but because the sim at it's core needs the raw data as it's mostly digital from an Airbus such info is hard to find. It is a bit ironic that the more modern and easily convertible aircraft is harder to simulate. I think that they were in a sim form long before manufacturing ever began.

    Cheers
