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.

WILCO - AIRBUS SERIES EVOLUTION VOL.1
Flavio
Complete and very well made aircraft. I am using it with satisfaction on my simulator made with opencockpits and VRinsight components with excellent compatibility in almost all commands. Excellent 2D windows of the PFD, ND, ECAM1 and ECAM2 panels that allow the extension on a second monitor. In my opinion the only improvement could be the sounds starting from the GPWS.

AUSCENE 2 - ADELAIDE INTERNATIONAL X V2.2 FSX P3D
Ajit
I bought it being the only Adelaide scenery out there, the buildings aren’t bad but its not really the quality one is used to in p3dv5 but it’s acceptable. The biggest issue is the ground poly which is basically not there if you have Australia V2 its horrific. I’ve been told when I emailed that an update is coming... hasn’t come yet. Will update stars when or if it comes out.
