Unlike other vendors, Aerosim Solutions specializes in custom order components and my services will not be limited to a specific product list. I can be contacted with a view to producing any type of cockpit component for any type of aircraft. My aim is to further promote the hobby and assist any other enthusiast who shares the passion for flight simulation.
The Aerosim Solutions workshop carries a full complement of machine tools. Two CNC router/milling machines have expanded capabilities to include custom engraving and backlight panels, gear cutting and mass part production. A wide range of aircraft knobs can be made via the silicon molding process. If you thought that your specific cockpit component requirements were unobtainable, contact us to see if we can be of assistance in making your parts become a reality.
About the website owner!
I have been a keen flight simulation enthusiast since the mid nineties which lead to having a go at flying real aircraft and I gained my recreational pilot’s licence in 1999 with ratings for C150, C152, C172 and Eagle150X. In 2004, I commenced construction of my first B737-800NG flight simulator cockpit and joined the newly formed enthusiast’s website www.mycockpit.org Shortly after joining I was invited to become a member of staff. Since then, I have been sharing knowledge and offering mechanical assistance to other cockpit builders and enthusiasts as the moderator of “Westozy’s Mechanical Engineering” forum. I have also had several articles published in Computer Pilot magazine.
Many visitors young and old frequent Gwyn’s Boeing 737 cockpit simulator on a regular basis and he is always happy to kick the tyres and light the fires for visitors! I have regular visits from some Virgin Australia airline pilots who bring a few beers and practice their failure scenarios prior to their bi-annual sim checks. It’s a fantastic experience having the real deal in the cockpit showing me how it’s done! They are quite amazed at the immersive experience and replication of accuracy that is possible in a home built cockpit simulator.
