    Question 747 cockpit prices

    After learning about a great piece of avionics software called PSX, I am very tempted to build a 747 cockpit. How far would I get with 15,000? Looking at maybe a FDS DSTD and pedestal?

    Re: 747 cockpit prices

    If you have genuinely got 15k to spend and you are absolutely commited to flying 747s and know the systems inside out, then the FDS 747 is probably your best bet. Remember that you will need to pay customs fees, taxes and duty on top when importing from FDS in Canada. Take into consideration space, building time, the learning curve and any further costs before making a decision. Also if you want to buy a cockpit, buy it all in one hit, dont buy bits here and there as it will cost you more in the long run and could lose you money and devalue your pit. Think about this seriously and make a decision because 15k is a lot of money to commit to a hobby. For 15k you could fly a Cessna for 150 hours in comparison. Good luck with your project.

    Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately I will not be able to pass the medical to fly a Cessna.

    You could save a Ton of Money making most stuff yourself, Buying from other companies out there! There is a 747 Throttle on Ebay just now from a -400 My guess is you easily could save 5000 GBP's with doing most things yourself!
