As the dream of a round 220 degree projection area seems not to come true, we plan to use walls and ceiling as projection area. The expected result will not be round of course, but also have the 220 degree view.

First we need to contruct the front projection area. Challenge here: we will need to access the outside door for cleaning and sometimes get fresh air.

As we will not be able to make the projection area movable we trust in our personal degree of fitness and provide a 50 cm high passage below the projection area. ;-)

BTW. Dimensions seem to be ok - despite of the sloping walls of course. In general we have around 4.5 meters width and height. A real benefit will probably be the high ceiling as we can place the forward projector very high not disturbing the light of the side projectors. But this will be math in a few weeks.

The access door to the room does not seem to be place properly. But due to the sloping walls there es no other chance to place it - and it's already there...

We place the simulator in the architectural environment of the house and test dimensions to get a feeling of the available space.

Some readers might remember that our plans to build a showroom in Bottrop needed to be postponed due to mining acitivties in the neighborhood. Coal mining in the "Ruhrgebiet"-area caused severe damages to our home and all plans had to be stopped.

But now we can start over again and detailled planning phase has begun. As always plans included some challenges and ours is - space. The simulator will be placed below the roof floor of our house. So we will have sloping walls. Plan is to establish a three projector set-up but in the first step we need to figure out if everything fits in general.

Did we say we personally deliver our products within Europe? Maybe we should think about this again. Delivery to France. The first traffic jam at 5:00 a.m.

And the last in the late afternoon.

You can bet we love this job. But sometimes it's really hard... ;-)

Deliveries within Europe are most likely done by ourselves. Our directly by our customers who pick-up parts in Dresden. Last week an A320 shell has been delivered to Hamburg...

We are always ready for special challenges. This time our customer had less than 2.5 m width available for his cockpit. We designed a solution that needs even less space but gives a very impressive feeling while flying.

Just wanted to tell you that the simulator arrived 15th of April and everyone here is VERY impressed! It looks fantastic, and I can hardly tell the difference from the real thing. It´s now under construction and I will send pictures when it´s all put together. I might have a few questions regarding technical details along the way.
Tell your team that you are all doing a great job, and I will recommend you to anyone who is interested.

Thank you for excellent customer support.

Many thanks for your kind words, Fredrik. Whenever you need assistance please contact us. We are happy to help.

"Thanks.

It took me less than 3 hours and very little help of my wife to build the cockpit frame. Very well done and very simple instructions. Quality is superb and the help from you in the purchasing period was unsurpased. I had a very specific request because some space issues and you kindly provided me a solution that suited my needs."

It was a pleasure to work with you, Julio!

Many thanks to our visitors at the FS Konferenz in Berlin last week. It was a real pleasure to be there with there.
