Welcome Pilot!   You just landed at your ultimate resource for advanced  flight simulation.  Our approach is one of making flight simulators more affordable 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 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 quite literally all of the  infinite details of building, configuring and optimizing a high-quality PC computer as well 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 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, office or flight school. It’s a comprehensive technical manual every pilot should own!

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 only solution to this issue is to find unique ways 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. 

Our goal at SimSamurai is to help you refine your own goals for creating an affordable flight sim cockpit and in doing so 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.
