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.

Excellent product! FPS friendly, a lot of details, I really like it! Without any regret, take it, if you like to fly small, cute airports! It is ideal for medium long flights from central and western Europe with regional aircrafts. Keep your work in this direction MLD!
A_A SCENERIES - KUALA LUMPUR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT V2 KLIA FSX
Mohd Shahrizal
It is awesome. Great texture. It feels really good to fly in KLIA. Good job. Hope there will be more product especially Malaysia or ASEAN related.
MK-STUDIOS - DUBLIN P3D4
Michael
I own over 70 P3Dv4+ payware airports from so many great developers, but with the new version 1.10 I think Dublin might be the absolute best on my system in terms of performance + detail + texture + lighting. Fantastic job by MK-Studios
TURBINE SOUND STUDIOS - BOEING 787 TRENT1000 HD PILOT EDITION SOUNDPACKAGE FSX P3D
Richard
Couldn't be happier. I love the qw787 and with these sounds it's simply wonderful. Going to get the genx pack soon.
ONCOURSE SOFTWARE - PF3 - ATC AT ITS BEST FSX P3D FS2004
thomas
if you are looking for a touch of realism this is the atc program for you. pf3 has the ability to render atc for vfr and ifr flight plans , from the simple direct route to complex sids and stars. Because of the many options in pf3 it gives you the ability to customize everything. there are to many features to list but I would recommend this program to any one who is serious about making their flight as real as possible.
GAFFER SIMULATIONS - OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT P3D4 - JOHANNESBURG
ELMAR
I was missing the major airport in SA, just having CPT was not enough. I knew that the quality of it would not be FT or FB. Having said that its pretty good and beats the default airport. The surroundings plus vegetation could do with a bit more visual design, a bit plain at times. But then again you park at the get and the important things such as Terminal plus Sode gates are implemented. In all satisfactory and it does the job fine. I great thanks to the developer to include a fix for the airports name change so you can get UTLIVE to work with easy enough instructions to implement. You can't beat this for the price. Joburg as been sort of abandoned by many devolopers. who rather make a scenery again that has been done before by someone else. At least Gaffer offers a decent upgrade to the default.

CENTRALSIM - TJBQ RAFAEL HERNANDEZ INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - AGUADILLA P3DV4
Robert
A beautifully made rendition of Aguadilla Intl' Airport that works very smoothly even with VR and the PMDG NGXu on my computer, using Active Sky weather. I walked all over this airport with the Avatar comparing it to what I was seeing in Google Maps, and it seems accurately made to the real airport, even to the Aguadilla Bowling Alley just in the front of the main terminal. I don't believe that the graphic hit is really any more than the default airport. It is great to have another airport for Puerto Rico that will give a nice destination for the little island from TJSJ Luis Muñoz Marín Intl' Airport in a small regional turbo-prop or GA aircraft. Perfect for a low altitude sight-seeing flight. I grabbed this jewel of an airport as soon as I seen it and I'm definitely not disappointed at all. It's a real value for the money.
JUSTSIM - EBBR - BRUSSELS AIRPORT V2 P3D4.4+
Eduardo
I give the product 4 starts because the new PBR textures introduced a bit of stuttering on my sim and the new textures load times of the airport buildings are a bit slow while my aircraft is on the air flying low over the airport. Compared to the original version this one is obviously looking better, but at the cost of lower and variable FPS in my sim.
MK-STUDIOS - DUBLIN P3D4
Ken
I have previously used the Eiresim Dublin and Aerosoft Mega Airport Dublin products. But this version by MK Studios is by far the best so far. Superb detailing, performance and lighting. And no installation issues arose. I therefore highly recommend.
