The Boeing 737-800 Fixed Base Flight Simulator has a 100% accurate cockpit. Most switches have been sourced from the original Boeing supplier. The B737 NG is fitted with the official Boeing 737-800 (W) Flight Dynamics Model from Boeing. The engines, CFM56-7B27, are rated at 27K pounds of thrust. The flight model software is developed by MPS and together with the aircraft manufacturer performance data drives the control loading system to represent the exact same feel on all flight controls as in the actual aircraft type it represents.

Through a number of channels, the control loading is provided to:

  • Each thrust lever
  • Each control column (pitch control one channel)
  • Each control column (roll control one channel)
  • Rudder pedals (Yaw control one channel)
  • Speedbrake handle
  • Stabilizer Trim Wheel
  • Nose wheel steering units
  • Brake pedals

Modular construction of the simulator allows the customer to easily replace or update modules.
