I bet you could do that cheaply with only 15" CRTs around and 15" CRTs down there.... not cheaply but $100 per CRT x 7=$700.00
-Transaero BOeing 737-200
plus joystick/control equip $1100 total
What now?

Check out http://www.flightdecksolutions.com this guy is doing this commercially! Figure a simulator such as these will run you about $3,000 to $5,000 or so.

Although what the original poster has shown is very nice, it is bulky. Check out the link I provided above, and also http://www.a320project.com

A friend of mine is thinking of building an MD80 cockpit with the kits from Flightdeck Solutions...he's crazy for for the Mad Dog so I'm sure he'll go for it  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I would love to have something like this but don't think I'll ever go for it - don't have the space, and probably wouldn't have the patience to build something like that Big grin

Still, it's awesome looking at what some people are capable of doing. I love that A320 flightdeck!!
