Video of a flight in my Boeing 737-800 cockpit

Recommended Posts

Thought you guys might be interested in this video of me flying from Miami to Tampa in my Boeing 737-800 cockpit. 

 

I am using Prepar3D V3.4 along with Radar Contact, MCE and Ultimate Traffic.

Very nice!!

May i ask how much it cost for the whole set up?

As i am wanting to invest also sometime in future.

Did you build it from scratch yourself?

Hi Mike,

 

Did not really track the total cost but it has to be in $40k plus region maybe even more  :wink:

 

I built it myself but mostly from Flight Deck Solutions parts who are an awesome company to deal with.

Loved it David, liked it, and subscribed.

Much appreciated Aaron - Thanks

 

I hope to be producing videos on a regular basis.

Oh dear... that makes my Saitek Yoke, Throttle and Rudder pedals with TrackIr look like default 737 next to PMDG one.... 

 

I am SO impressed.

That's awesome. How many computers are running this rig?

 

4 high end computers that I built, one driving the Sim-Avionics software and then one each running Prepar3D for each of the 70" 4k TV's using WideView.

 

David

Thanks guys.

 
One of my goals for this year is to find someone local with more knowledge of flying the 737 (preferably a real 737 pilot or ex-pilot) who would be interested in flying in the FO position to extend my knowledge and also I think it would also make the video's even more interesting.  I still need to install a second set of rudder pedals in the FO position, but that should happen by March.
 
At some point I also want to make a video giving a tour of my setup.

Just published the first part in a series of short videos covering the basic procedures I use in my Boeing 737-800 cockpit.

 

I anticipate releasing each part on a weekly basis.

 

Not sure how useful or interesting they are to people, but at least they give a closeup view of different areas of my simulator.
