Welcome Pilot!   You have landed at your ultimate resource for professional quality flight simulation.  Our approach is one of making advanced flight simulation more affordable to the home user, hobbyist, or training professional. 

We sell DIY Flight Simulator Kits, Plans and Cockpit Blueprints and Ready to Assemble flight simulator cockpits.  In addition to our builder friendly options we also offer professional Turn-Key Flight Simulators complete with all hardware, software, and more.  

Our most popular product sold worldwide is a highly detailed flight sim technical manual called the Ultimate Guide to Advanced Flight Simulation (UGTAFS). This unique and in-depth 300+ page manual 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 building, configuring and optimizing a pro-level PC computer as well as how to manage, mold, and manipulate all of the top add-on software for flight simulation.  With it you will learn how to implement, configure, and control virtually every facet of today’s modern “plug and play” hardware and software all of which will allow to you create an advanced flight simulator for your home, school, or office. It’s a manual that every sim pilot should own.

We also offer many other unique products that will take your experience to a much higher level of fun and realism.

All SimSamurai products are specifically created for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004, FSX, and Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D but most all of our products can also be applied to MSFlight, X-Plane, and other more “gaming” style of simulation software.  All of our DIY flight simulator cockpit shells can also be used for gaming or combat style simulators such as DCS Blackshark, Lock On (LOMAC), Hawk, Falcon Allied Force, Wings Of Prey, Rise Of Flight, and Warbirds.  In short, all SimSamurai sim shell cockpits can be applied to any flight sim software.

The Sim Samurai Flight Simulation Philosophy

FACT: Most pilots, be they real world professionals or home hobbyists, want to own a full scaled flight simulator cockpit but often 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 many PC’s to operate and often costs well over $50,000 to build or purchase. 

The only solution to this major issue is to build an economically made yet professional looking sim cockpit based around one PC that can still double for daily “home or office” style computing.  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. 

As your Sim Master we will help you refine your goals for creating an affordable flight sim cockpit and will help you soar to new heights of virtual reality!  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.
