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!

Computers Ordered

I'm not a fan on computers and am lucky to know a few people who can guide me throgh the maze of computer hardware (thanks Nat & Boyd).

The simulation set up requires two PC's.  One will run FSX and other add on software, while the second PC will be dedicated to Sim Avionics.  Due to multiple monitors being used with Sim Avionics, three video cards will be installed in the PC running Sim Avioncs.

PC's are ordered and will be assembled in a a week or so if everything goes according to plan.
