Welcome to my website showing the development and construction of Beechcraft Baron 58 simulator cockpit.

The aim of this website is to show you how the cockpit has been designed and constructed. If you are already building a cockpit then perhaps this site will bring some new ideas to your project. If, however, you are tentatively thinking about building a cockpit but do not know where to start then perhaps this website will give you the inspiration you are looking for.

I am a GA pilot so I like flying but also like the engineering and construction aspects of building a simpit. I am building this cockpit simulator with my father who has all the engineering and craftsman's skills.

There are a lot of enthusiasts building the typical jet/flight deck airliners, the number of prop/GA simbuilders is much less, so I hope this site will be of any help for those who are building a prop/GA or have the intention.
