A Homebuilt Flight Simulator That Is Out of This World (15 pics)

Posted in Random » Awesome   19 Nov 2014   / 7284 views

Igor Perne, 53, bought a decommissioned Cyprus Airways plane and spent two and a half years transforming it into a flight simulator. The final product is super-cool.

 

Perne had to install some 10km (6.21 miles) of wiring to connect some 300 working switches and 250 indicator lights, as well as hooking up six computers to run the simulation. Perne cooperates with fellow flying enthusiasts in the Netherlands, Germany, and several other countries, flying on virtual routes across a virtual European sky, complete with virtual flight control operators and realistic checklists and weather conditions

not sure i see the point of buying an actual airliner if you're just going to chop the cockpit off and convert it to a flight-simulator.

a few months ago you shared a post of a guy who did a home-built version. it turned out much the same, and seemed a lot more practical TBH.
