This site documents the progress and the thinking behind my A320 Flight Simulator. I will add to it as the construction progresses in the form of a blog.
I have always been interested in simulation and in my professional career I saw (and sometimes flew) many simulators; these were mainly military full simulators and part task trainers, also a couple of combat flight simulator domes. I never had any contact with heavy metal types although I would have liked to have done so. It is possible to buy time on commercial simulators but these experiences in my view are too brief and too expensive. I have never seen an Airbus cockpit.
Having been flying on Vatsim for some time and made contact with other simulator builders. I felt that building a full cockpit was one of those things in life that has to be done.
Please do not ask me for drawings; I did not produce any. I worked from dimensions and photographs - see the links page. Even if I had drawings of my simulator they would not necessarily be of any use to others as it is necessary to make panels etc to suit the parts one is going to use.
