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 and unlimited access to the forum.

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 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.

Excellent! Very realistic! The frame rate is better on this version than on the previous! The new terminal (T2) is there and is very beautiful! This product really deserves 5 stars!
MWP PROJECTS - X ATMOENGINE XP11
TS Brady
I'm not impressed. The water looks horrible, much prefer XP11 default. The clouds are nice, better than XP11 default, but the sky is too misty/foggy. Almost every weather situation, except clear skies give a very hazy sky. The price isn't bad, but I'm underwhelmed by what you get. In fact, I've uninstalled X AtmoEngine end re-installed SkyMaxx Pro v4.

DO NOT BUY! Less than 30 min into it and all ready want a refund. Virtua-
l cockpit visual quality is from like fs9 era. click on any circuit breaker and other switches move. left click does nothing on some switches but on other does something. 3 position switches move like they are 2 position switches. Same cockpit sound ALL the time regardless of power input or stage of flight. Extrem-
ely not satisfied with this product. Should be a Freeware in my opinion.
MWP PROJECTS - ATMOENGINE PLUGIN P3D4
Tristan Hancock
Everything looks really nice, but I am most definitely NOT noticing an FPS Boost, the opposite infact. For the first time my fps tend to go and remain under 20 fps in certain situations.(i7--
7700k @ 4.5Ghz + GTX1080).

Amazing product, quite striking realism Just a small concern for the installation that was quickly settled with the team, I was very impressed by the speed of their response and their effectiveness. -
I highly recommend it

FSXCENERY - KROC GREATER ROCHESTER AIRPORT FSX P3D
Robert Miller
This airport is now out of date due to the renovations that completed late 2018. Before that, the airport itself was okay, but the surrounding "photoreal" region is blurry and the autogen seems to be non-existent. In fact it is flat land all around the airport and then the default autogen pops in about 3 miles away from the airport. Als-
o, progressive taxi does not appear to work with the airport. This doesn't affect me that much as I know the airport layout well, but those unfamiliar may have a difficult time taxiing to the 3 runways. I'v-
e tried contacting the developer to help with both the autogen and progressive taxi issue on 1/5 and was told that they were taking a MONTH off for Christmas vacation and said they would contact me when they got back. I emailed them again on 2/5 and have still yet to hear back (and have a feeling I won't). Save your money and don't get this airport, even on sale - you'll just end up disabling the scenery like I did.
FLYTAMPA - VIENNA LOWW V.2 FSX P3D FS2004
Gregory Verba
Another great airport from Flytampa. The detailing level is very good. Seasonal ground changes, dynamic lighting, sode implementation adds huge amount of immersion. The scenery highly optimized and performance is on the top.
