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.

RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY ST. KITTS 2017 FSX P3D
Jose Luis Reyes
Very responsive product support. Zev assisted me with compatibility issues with P3Dv4. If you're looking to enhance your flying experience in the Caribbean this scenery is a great buy! I'm looking forward to add more islands from this developer.
AEROSKY PRODUCTION - COZY UNIVERSAL CLOUD FSX P3D
Graham Smith
I use P3Dv3.4, Active Sky Next and REX texture direct with soft clouds and have been happy with the results although the amount of choice available to make changes to sky, clouds etc has been a bit bewildering with newer and more detailed latest offerings available. Aft-
er enjoying the product screenshots I decidedto try Cozy Universal Cloud. Ran the installer which presumably installed their cloud textures over the ones installed, fired up the sim and went flying. Very impressed. Noticed cloud shadows passing over the aircraft and better shadows onthe ground. Liked the cloud wisps passing the cockpit during the climb and currently enjoying watching the clouds pass by at FL240 in the cruise. I have made no changes to any game settings and the result, in my opinion, has been well worth the price. Great stuff!

GRAND ISLAND SIM - BANJUL GBYD P3D4
Raimundas Rukas
Nice scenery, but still has elevation issues - flying houses on the left side approaching runway 32, which cannot be fixed by ftx global vector tool, but can be disabled by switching off area dense buildings in scenery folder.

FLIGHTBEAM - KSFO - SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
pablo Moreno Park
WOW. I honestly could writte an essay about this airport it is that good. Flightbeam is always incredible for flight sim scenery. The airport detail is perfect and with the sode jetways it adds to the immerison. The rain effects and the puddles add to the immersion aswell. The airport also comes with an interior and it is done to an exceptional level. Thank you Flightbeam for this incredible airport and if you fly in vatsim the atc is very active and amazing :)
MK-STUDIOS - LISBON P3D4
pablo Moreno Park
WOW. I do not usually do reviews but boy is this top of the top. The approach withe the costum land marks are just breath taking specially in the visual for RW03. The terminal os done to an exceptional level and the texturing of the airport is very good too not to mention the FPS which is the best large airport category in my opinion. It is wrong not to have this in your sim library and the controllers in vatsim are amazing and very active. Well done MK-STUDIOS :)
