DIY 737 Flight Simulator Is a Work of Art [Video]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on January 12th, 2012

This B737-800NG cockpit replica, two years in the making, is an amazingly detailed 1:1 build with a build in computer system and flight simulator. Check out the video to see it in action.

This detailed simulator includes every imaginable detail from the boot sequence of the aircraft’s onboard computers to properly light instrument panels. The aviation buff behind the project even rebuilt the bucket seats to airline specifications. Check out the video above to see it in action and then hit up the link below for the project blog.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
