DIPLOMA IN AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS (S90)
Commercial Flight Simulator Systems
The aim of this project is to upgrade the ergonomics and controls of the B737 flight simulator module to provide a more realistic flight experience. Features include re-designing the control column to reduce the weight and the thickness of the column, modifying the pilot seats to one with a cutout to accommodate the movement of the control column, designing the main instrument panel to simulate the actual layout of a B737 cockpit and shifting the pilot seat, throttle column and center pedestal forward. The upgraded module will be retrofitted into the existing SP full-motion simulator dome.
