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!

Handy Software to Determine Hard Drive Usage - HD Graph

Every now and again I find a program which is very handy.  We all know that flight simulator is hard drive hungry; once scenery files and other specialist files are added the hard drive can fill up very quickly.

HD Graph is a standalone program (does not need to be installed to your computer) that allows you to interrogate your hard drive to graphically display the hard disk space usage.  It shows all the directories and subdirectories of the hard drive on a single graph, allowing to see the largest directories at a glance. 

At the moment the tool is available free of charge from the HD Graph website, or you can download the tool from FS Add Ons on this site.
