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).
