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!

Journal Post Updates - Check the Change Tracker in the Menu

I've just noticed that whenever I make an update to an existing Journal topic it isn't readily noticeable.  Often I use the update feature of a post to add to the thread.  To view the latest updates or follow ups, click the Change Tracker (changes & updates) in the menu to the right of this post.

I've just updated the following two posts

Additional Information Sought

I've received several questions from individuals asking for more detail to how the 737 throttle quadrant was calibrated to FS use.

Whilst this is a complicated subject - especially to write about - I will strive to put some thoughts down on paper and publish in a separate journal entry in the near future.

In the meatime, I hope this blog and the information it contains is helpful.
