Welcome Pilot!   You have landed at your ultimate resource for affordably advanced  flight simulation.  Our approach is one of making flight simulators more flexible and cost-effective for the home user, hobbyist, school, or training professional. 

We sell DIY Flight Simulator Kits, Plans, Cockpit Blueprints and Ready to Assemble flight simulator packages.  In addition to builder friendly options we also offer professional quality “turn-key” Flight Simulators complete with all hardware, software, and the proper tools to take flight sim training to a higher level.

One of our most popular products sold worldwide is a highly detailed technical manual called the Ultimate Guide to Advanced Flight Simulation (UGTAFS). This unique and in-depth 300+ page book is made for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004, FSX, and Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D.  The “UGTAFS” teaches you how to fully maximize your sim experience by hand walking you through all of the many infinite details of how to build, configure and optimize a high-quality computer for flight simulation.   The UGTAFS also teaches how to manage, mold, and manipulate all of the top add-on software for desktop computer based flight simulation.  With it you will learn how to implement, configure, and control most every facet of today’s modern “plug and play” hardware and software.   The end result is allowing anyone to   create an advanced flight simulator for the home, school, office or flight school.  It’s a comprehensive technical manual every pilot should own!

Please take a few minutes to check out our entire website.  We also offer many other unique flight simulator products that will take your flight sim training to a much higher level of fun and realism.

As you will see, all SimSamurai products are designed to provide a very comprehensive system for flight training.  When combined, they create a complete toolbox from which to learn or teach the core principles of aviation, all from a very cost-effective professional quality flight simulation environment.

All SimSamurai products are designed for various flight simulation software but our main focus is for Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D as well as Microsoft Flight Simulator X and MSFS 2004.  All of our cockpit shell products and DIY plans can also be applied to Laminar Research’s X-Plane, as well as any gaming style simulation software.  All of our DIY flight simulator cockpit shells can easily be used for gaming sims or combat style simulators such as DCS (Digital Combat Simulations) Blackshark, Lock On (LOMAC), Hawk, Falcon Allied Force, Wings Of Prey, Rise Of Flight, and Warbirds.  In short, all SimSamurai cockpits can be applied to any flight simulator software and will make for a very immersive environment.

SimSamurai began business in 2007.  Our core goal is to always find innovative ways to keep flight simulation more affordable and more accessible to all who have an interest in aviation.  We will always strive to grow each year with added products, video tutorials and web links to the best sites and products that will help you build the flight simulator cockpit that you’ve always dreamed of.  If you cannot find what you need we will always do our best to give you the right heading!

The SimSamurai Flight Simulation Philosophy

Most pilots, be they real world professionals or home hobbyists, want to own a full scaled flight simulator cockpit but think it will cost too much and really don’t know where to begin to achieve that goal.  Secondly, most people can’t afford to have a single PC that is entirely dedicated to simulator use only, nor can they afford a commercial level sim which typically requires several PC’s to operate and often costs well over $20,000 to build or purchase. 

The key solution to this issue is to offer unique ways to build an economically made yet professional quality sim cockpit based around one PC that can still double for all daily “home or office” style computing such as web surfing, watching video, checking email, etc.  Lastly, a great sim pit for any home, school, or office should be built on three main principles of; Affordability, Ease of Construction, and Ease of Relocation.  At SimSamurai we achieve all these goals and more.

SimSamurai is here to help you refine your own goals for creating an affordable flight sim cockpit and in doing so we will help you soar to new heights of fun and pilot proficiency.  You’ve got to start somewhere so please stay awhile and look around.  If you don’t see what you’re looking for right now please come back soon as we regularly update our website with new content.
