Bruno Leger's Nonolight simulators de vol is a company that will help you build a light aircraft cockpit in France. (site en rançaise)
FSCockpit.com is a site with listings for a multitude of cockpit building suppliers and resources. Well worth a look.
Kennon Aircraft Covers Manufactures protective covers, sun shields, and heat screens for general aviation, business aviation and military aviation air planes and helicopters. Shop securely online.
Online Documentation is available, covering a wide variety of topics. Many of the documents are designed to help first-time EMDA users with wiring switches, lamps and rotary encoders, and programming their EPIC cards for the first time.
CSI is pleased to be a major supplier of Airbus style cockpit components to Flightcenter, based in Baden,Switzerland. Flightcentre staff have developed a full training cockpit, complete with instructor station.
For Airbus afficianados, a stop at OB Productions is highly recommended. Oliver Braun has developed probably the most realistic, operational software Airbus cockpit around. "Airbus Unlimited" works with FS98 (and FS2000). There are A320, A330 and A340 versions available.
If you've ever wanted to buy a real cockpit and move it a long distance to set up your B737 Simulator Project these guys will be an inspiration to you!
CSI is pleased to have been selected by Flightsimulator.ch as the supplier of Airbus style control panels for their full-motion simulator. If you're interested in the software to control a motion base, this is a site you should check out.
Matt Ford's 737 simulator uses real Boeing parts, and a very authentic system of EPIC coding to provide realistic reactions from each control panel. You'll be impressed!
The Blue Side Up web site is the place to go if you're having trouble with coding your EPIC card to work with your flight simulator. Ray Sotkiewicz has done an great job of explaining the intricate and sometimes daunting challenge of starting out with an EPIC system.
James Price's Boeing 737 cockpit is constructed almost entirely of REAL Boeing parts. It's an amazing achievement, and the simulator performs flawlessly. James has made extensive use of EMDA Wiring Cards to keep his cockpit modular and easy to wire.
John Dunkley is building a Boeing 747-400 simulator, with a motion platform as part of the project. He also has a unique suggestion for constructing the cockpit shell. Check it out!
Klaus Schmidinger's full motion platform project is a great source of information for anyone interested in adding motion to their simulation experience. Klaus has done a lot of work on this project, and the step-by-step photos are a great aid to other builders.
Mike Lehkamp's Boeing 757 cockpit is something to see. Check out the way Mike has been able to combine his own aircraft panels with our CSI replicas to come up with a very authentic product.
R&R Electronics - This is the place to start if you're building a cockpit. The EPIC card allows you to turn toggle switches into keystrokes. It really is amazing what a difference this makes. Plus, you can buy your EMDA Wiring Interface cards right from R&R at the same time you order your EPIC!
Matt Wietlispach has been VERY busy building a simulator cockpit for himself with surplus parts, including an F-100 ejection seat. If you've ever dreamed of being able to use actual aircraft parts in your cockpit, you have to check out Matt's project. This is one of the most impressive cockpits we've seen!
Michael Tavcar's Cockpit Page - If you're keen on building your own cockpit, or on helicopter simulations, this is a place you should visit. Michael has some good ideas on integrating EPIC technology into your simulations. (And a super looking cockpit - built in a real simulator box!)
