What is a home cockpit?
Some of you guys may discover this hobby and don’t know exactly what is a Home Cockpit.
Home cockpits has been developed for all aviation simulation enthusiast who wanted more reality in simulation.
Indeed, with simulation software for public such as Flight simulator or more professional like P3D, are limited in terms of interactions.
For the less equipped, to fly a plane on these simulators is with a simple joystick. For others, there are different modules that take over some or all aircraft function.
We can find different materials allowing a better reality of piloting.
Cockpit builders simply want more reality in simulation. For this, some of them buy modules that are ready made, others build them themselves.
This goes from the partial reproduction of an aircraft type, to the realization of an entire cockpit taking over all the features of the aircraft.
You will find in the section “My links” websites of different cockpit builders, from the Cessna 172 to the Boeing 747.
Why Home Cockpit is one of my favorite hobbies?
The Home Cockpit construction is a hobby taking up many of my passions:
– 3D modeling,
– And the DIY!
It is for all these reasons that building home cockpit pleases me.
In addition to this, once the realization is completed there is the pleasure of Flying.
What are my home cockpit simulator project?
In this blog, you will be able to follow the advance of my simulator project. (Here)
Beechcraft 200 – King Air
I know what you probably think: it’s a lot!
Indeed, the realization of one cockpit takes already a long time then the realization of 4 cockpits …
I will take all my time to realize them and you will be able to follow on this blog all the progresses of these different projects.
