The Sidewalls and Side Pedestals
This picture is from an original aircraft, it was apparent that I make some compromises in this area. Due to the width of the loft where the simulator is located I needto reduce the width of the simulator. The side pedestals are therefore narrower at the aft end than the real aircraft which means I have room to walk round to the back but it does not detract from the room to get the sidestick and tiller onto the top of the box. I also simplified the sills a little - no grab handle - but I may add that later when I have got some higher priority tasks done.

I want to build this extra screen in somewhere and I am trying a few locations. This screen displays the services computer and can select Mapping, routing, weather, communications programmes etc.
