SIMULATOR TYPES AND SIZES ~ PLANNING YOUR SIM ROOM

Space limitations are always a problem when designing your simulator.

For a small room you will need to decide on the size of a Desktop or Single seat sim.
Medium size room you could possible manage a Single or Dual Seat training setup.
Large size room you could decide on a Full Size simulator.
When designing your sim to go into a room you will have to go to a setup which is modular and be moved through the door frame. - ie. about 70 - 75cm wide maximum.

SIMULATOR ROOM

My B737 shell or frame is ...
Rear BulkHead.......2350 wide
Front / Nose...........1400 wide
Rear Ceiling/Roof...2200 high

Small walking space surronds the simulator.

Infront of the sim are the three screens for the projected vision.

To the left side is a small desktop and computer to run the sim-avionics software and the instructor station.

At the back of the sim, is the computer running MS Flight Sim. Output goes to a maxtrox card and into three short throw projectors.

My sim room is in a garage, and thus rectangular in shape.
A square room is perhaps a better design if you have the capacity to do so.

The dimension of my garage are 4.100 m long and 2.900m wide.

Small entry door is located on the right side.

Two large swinging doors form part of the wall.
These open out into the garage to allow large access to and from the sim room.

Simulator is on a platform castor wheels.
YOUR SIMULATOR ROOM

Best to adapt your sim design and size to suit your sim room, rather that go for 100% accuracy with insufficient space for the extras such as storage, computers, screens, instructor panel etc.
