Building a Boeing 737 Home Cockpit

Please note that this is an enthusiast blog and not for real world training.

If you have ever fantasised about becoming an airline pilot, your dreams may have never been closer to becoming true.

Flight simulation has taken on a constantly evolving reality! With computer programs fine tuning, and in many cases paralleling real aircraft systems and performance. This coupled with the ability to build an accurate replication of a real cockpit in you home, allows your dream to come into fruition.

Not all of us of course will be able to build a full Boeing 737 cockpit in our homes. Time,cost,money and space are necessary commodities that most of us do not have, But still you can immerse yourself into your fantasy airline pilots role right through your monitor.

My program of choice is the PMDG NGX for flight simulator X. This simulator addon has surpassed all my expectations for a Boeing 737 flight simulation and I will go into detail with this throughout this blog. (There simply is so much to go through).

Take a look at this!


To get the most out of your flight simulation experience knowing you aircraft and doing things like a real airline pilot will make your flight simulation time very rewarding. I have flown real aircraft before having held a private pilots license and I can tell you now that that flight simulation is almost there with its accuracy and therefore gives for a very real experience indeed.
