Mission Statement 

The purpose of FLAPS-2-APPROACH is two-fold:  To document the construction of a Boeing 737 flight simulator, and to act as a platform to share aviation-related articles pertaining to the Boeing 737; thereby, providing a source of inspiration and reference to like-minded individuals.

I am not a professional journalist.  Writing for a cross section of readers from differing cultures and languages with varying degrees of technical ability, can at times be challenging. I hope there are not too many spelling and grammatical mistakes.

 

Note:   I have NO affiliation with ANY manufacturer or reseller.  All reviews and content are 'frank and fearless' - I tell it as I see it.  Do not complain if you do not like what you read.

I use the words 'modules & panels' and 'CDU & FMC' interchangeably.  The definition of the acronym 'OEM' is Original Equipment Manufacturer (aka real aicraft part).

 

All funds are used to offset the cost of server and website hosting (Thank You...)

No advertising on this website - EVER!

The refurbishing of the Boeing 737-300 throttle quadrant is almost completed and delivery to Australia should be in a week or so.  The work involved converting this throttle quadrant to flight simulator use has been quite lengthy, however, I believe the end result will justify the wait.  As with everything in flight simulation - one has to have patience.....

Read more about the TQ and see some additional pictures which have been sent to me, in the updated section of the original thread (under the original post).  Click the blue aircraft icon to read the update.
