Triggered by some experience as a child (I had the opportunity in the 1970s
to fly a fixed base simulator for General Aviation in a shopping mall) the virus of
flight simulation is raised.
After many year of flying different simulation "games" on different kind of computers, I decided to
start building my own cockpit.
It needed another several years to find the answer, what kind of simulator and how big I should it build.
Then I found some useful information on the Internet and started to build
a generic single seat fighter cockpit based on Akers-Barnes Cockpit Mk 1.
This project is also called phase one and took several years to get the right touch.
Based on the experience I made with phase one, I started to enhance and rebuild the cockpit
to a generic dual seat cockpit. This time it should look more like a modern General Aviation VFR cockpit.
With the new modular concept, several different panels can be used with the same base layout.
