You don't need to be a carpenter or possess
special construction skills. The DIY Flight Sims
projects are "do it yourself" projects that are
designed for flight simulator hobbyists.
We offer a video for each DIY project that shows
the building process. Each DIY video includes a
comprehensive instruction manual that goes into
more detail and shows every measurement and
step for building a flight simulator cockpit or

|YOU Can Build a Flight Simulator
Cockpit for Your Home
Build a homemade flight simulator. DIY Flight Sims can help. You can
build the projects with simple hand tools such as a box knife,
measuring tape, screwdriver, small paint roller and brush, PVC pipe
cutter, caulk gun, miter box cordless screwdriver (if you prefer that
instead of the regular screwdriver).
You do not have to spend a lot on building materials
Buy the supplies from your local home improvement store like Lowe's
or Home Depot. You can build these projects with styrofoam
insulation, regular construction glue, wood boards and other common
Build the cockpit frames from PVC pipe and connectors. PVC pipe
is inexpensive, lightweight, easy to cut and readily available.
You might already have some of this stuff
By the time you're ready to build a home flight simulator, you probably
already have flight sim software loaded on your computer and you
might have some flight controls like a yoke, rudder pedals and a
throttle quadrant. If you need flight sim gear, check out our Online
Store. Most DIY Flight Sim builders tend to modify the projects to fit
whatever components and resources they have available. You can
see some examples of this in the Customer Gallery.
