Flight Simulators

If you wanted to set up your own simulator you would need to decide how much time and money you want to put into the project. There are 737 Cockpits that people have built in their homes. Some in their bedrooms!! As for the most simple, it could be a laptop and an old version of any flight simulator controlled by keyboard inputs. Below I’ve listed out a few thoughts including build out.

Software for training
X-Plane
MS- Flight Simulator
Prepar3D

Software for flight games

IL-2 Sturmovik’
