During 2018, I ventured into realizing a dream of mine which was to acquire the basic gauges, switches and other hardware required to build an 'open' Cessna home cockpit.

To start, I bought the following Saitek / Logitech equipment: 4 Pro Flight Instrument Panels (FIPs), 1 Pro Flight Radio Panel, 1 Pro Flight Multi Panel, and 1 Pro Flight Switch Panel.

Mid-way through the build phase of my home cockpit which started in October 2018, I elected to adjust my approach to setting up the gauges, opting for Sim Innovations' Air Manager along with 3D printed bezels and hard-wired encoders which are operated using SimVims' software. My cockpit is now completed and is fully operational. The exercise was an interesting challenge but most importantly a great learning experience.

I now have four (4) Saitek / Logitech Flight Information Panels (FIPs) for sale at a reduced price. My purchase price for the four FIPs was $800 CDN (4 @ $199.99 each before the 15% sales taxe). Three of the instruments were used for no more than 8 flying hours and the fourth one never used. I believe asking 75% of my original cost ($600 CDN) is being fair. Should you be interested but don't require all four units, I will entertain selling them separately for $150 CDN each. As noted in the title of this post, I'm in the Ottawa / Gatineau area. To reduce/eliminate shipping costs, my preference is to sell the equipment locally.

Also, I recently upgraded my ThrustMaster Rudder Pedals to MFG Crosswind pedals. So the ThrustMaster Rudder pedals are also for sale. My original cost was $101.00 CDN. I'm asking $50.00 CDN. The pedals feature removable heel rests and plug into an RJ12/USB Adapter which allows the pedals to be used with a Racing simulator.
