Once you have decided that a couple of monitors on the desk just doesn’t really feel like flying, the next level is to increase the simulation immersion so that it feels like you are actually in an aircraft.
It's time migrate away from the desktop system and into a fully enclosed life-sized cockpit shell.
This "kit" consists of highly detailed instructions (849 pages in all) to build your own shell enclosure out of pieces of wood.

Inside the E-Book, you'll find:

  • More than 800 Pages
  • More than 400 Photographs of the cockpit throughout the entire construction process.
  • More than 200 Construction diagrams
  • More than 500 Dimensioned Drawings
  • the E-Book also includes a voucher for 2 free hours of individual e-mail support as well as many articles on the a support website.
  • Version 3 contains an extra 83-page PDF booklet to further help you build the enclosure.

What this book is:

  • This E-Book provides a Step-by-Step guide to building the cockpit enclosure for a flight simulator using many wood pieces cut according to clear drawings.
  • Although the cockpit is designed to fit into a room as small as 2,5m x 4m, it is based on the dimensions of the Cessna 172 and is 1:1 life-size.
  • The book is a construction manual. You will need to do quite a bit of woodwork, but it’s easy stuff - I have provided you with clear dimensioned drawings for every single part that needs to be cut.
  • The cockpit is designed to have the outside view displayed by 3x 24” monitors mounted at an angle of 120° to each other; and the virtual cockpit instruments’ display using a large 32” monitor below it. An optional 24” monitor can be installed in each door for side external views. These physically extend past your shoulder.
  • While this E-Book is a generic blueprint, you will need to be prepared to make alterations in the design to fit the exact dimensions of your monitors (and whether they are removed from their bezels or not) and also to accommodate the simulator control hardware. In addition to unlimited use of the support website (https://davebritzius.com) and forum, every purchaser of this book is entitled to 2 private hours of my time to assist in this, absolutely free.
  • Since the entire structure is held together with screws and wood joints, (not glue) you will be able to dismantle and re-assemble the cockpit. It will, no doubt, require a new paint job and windscreen repairs each time you assemble it, though.

What this book is not:

  • The book does not include any computer hardware recommendations or flight simulation software instructions. I can, however, offer insights, support, configuration instructions even shopping lists etc.
  • This is not a project for projectors, only for monitors.
  • This is not a “full motion simulator” with hydraulic tilting. (Cost!). It is static.
  • This is not a weekend project - it will take you many hours to build this cockpit.

It has taken nearly three years (full-time) to create this e-book because I wanted to make absolutely sure that it was as easy as possible for you to quickly construct your own cockpit with the assurance that everything would fit properly. I first created the design using a 3D CAD program. I then figured out the best place to start and divided up the whole construction job into discreet “Steps”. I created the dimensioned drawings for each part of that step, and, using those drawings, I immediately cut the wooden pieces in my little home workshop. This is a very inefficient way to do it, but it ensures that every dimension that I required was there on the drawing and that no critical dimension had been left out.
Once the parts for a “Step” had been cut, I assembled them, and immediately created the assembly diagrams. After photographing the completed “Step”, the cycle began again for the next step...

Since the E-book was written side by side with the construction of the cockpit, you can be sure that it is error-free and absolutely possible for anyone who has a small amount of woodworking knowledge and is handy with basic tools.
I’m not a competent woodworker - what now? If you are not a woodworking master craftsman, that’s OK - you can mostly get away with cutting errors as large as a whole millimetre!.
If you are not a woodworking hobbyist at all, simply take all the dimensioned drawings to a professional wood-shop and they will cut them for you, or, to get it done even cheaper, locate an amateur woodworker in your neighbourhood who will cut the pieces for you over a period of time.

I also have many extra articles on my support website - https://davebritzius.com.

TROPICALSIM-2 - FARO AIRPORT MSFS
Joao
Very disappointing -
Its just too expensive for what it offers Low resolution textures (eg gate numbers), some unacceptable 2D models (main airport sign), default jetways and i think default concrete ground textures as well. I also had some trouble running ils and rnav approach. Don’-
t get me wrong. It’s a good looking airport overall but comparing other airports from other companies in this price range, Faro from Tropicalsim is way too expensive. I sincerely hope for some updates in the future …. Tropicalsim … your costumers are waiting for improvements… and I 'll gladly change my review is I see any major update…
PILOT EXPERIENCE SIM - BORDEAUX MERIGNAC LFBD P3D4 P3D5
Robert
I really want to like it since overall it's visually fine and definitely a big improvement over default scenery. There are some things to nitpick with the textures, strange 3D grass, LOD issues, but I can live with that. However, I get much better performance at places like KLAX and EGLL than I do here. This scenery eats VRAM like crazy and frames are low. I use very modest settings in V5 and LFBD is simply not a pleasant experience in 2D and completely unusable in VR.
FS ACADEMY - VFR MSFS
Jason
A fun and perhaps "situationally" useful tool. It's instruction triggers are speed/altitude/-
location based so if you miss even the slightest direction you're just going to keep buzzing along without even knowing you missed something, this coupled with obtuse and vague verbal directions renders individual missions almost literally unfinishable without flying big loops looking for a trigger and resorting to trial and error. Nothing on your instrument panel is ever highlighted and it assumes you already know how to fly, which defeats the purpose. Honestly, I'm not sure if I even officially finished with missions 2/3/4/5 and that was in fact flying aforementioned loops and even resorting to opening Little NavMap to figure out where I was. For a frame of reference I'm a complete noob to aviation, but I have played MFS 2020 for about 200 hours and probably have another 100 hours reading and watching tutorials. A nice concept and well intentioned, but ultimately nearly useless for the intended audience.
SIM SKUNK WORKS - FIAT-AERITALIA G-91 FOR MSFS
Dave
I love the plane. It is everything I was looking for and it looks great too. I haven't noticed any performance issues. But one thing ruins it for me. I play MSFS2020 mostly in VR with hotas and for some reason when I retract the landing gear it stops working, not with the hotas, not with mouse, not with keyboard. I'm not able to land the plane properly and I would very much like to land it. Hope you guys can fix this. (would make 3 stars become 5 stars) Also I would like the GUN to work, but I guess I'm hoping for too much now. :P Cheers, Dave.

Great work by the Sierrasim team. My home airport looks very accurate. Highly recommend!

Belongs in the freeware section of flightsim.to So many developers pop up these days with minimal efffort trying to make a quick buck. 1MB for a payware scenery ????
RUSD - UHPP KAMCHATKA MSFS
Fulvio
Great add-on at a great price; I missed this airport since Aerosoft's "Kamchatka". Let's wait for other Asiatic Russian airports and, BTW, thanks for all that MiG-25! Quite a lot, actually.
ZINERTEK - ENHANCED AIRPORT GRAPHICS MSFS
Anthony
This is in dire need of an update, It causes slow loading times, system lags, and is incompatible with some products. Orbx Brisbane to name one. With this installed and only this and Brisbane, the ground mess in the Orbx scenery is garb. Had this running a while. It does look great,but needs badly to be optimized and look at compatibility issues. My system performance in game literally tripled with this uninstalled. Not recommended at this stage, especially for more power users with high end machines using high LODS, it will put a quagillion gigs into your texture load. 2 stars because they do look amazing. just not good enough to kill my experience for.
