RE: 737 Trim Switch

There are a couple of glimpses of the upper right overhead panel; three cabin zone temperature selector knobs are shown meaning that this sim isn't a -700. It has to be a -800 or -900.

Are there any -900 sims? Any where?

So there's a very strong chance that this sim is a -800.

Per the U.S. F.A.R.s (Federal Aviation Regulations), a third pilot isn't required unless the scheduled time is greater than 8 hours. IIRC, if an international flight is scheduled for greater than 12 hours, then a fourth pilot is required. So, 8 hours or less = 2 pilots. 8.1 to 12 hours = 3 pilots. 1...
