JetMax-737 Flight Sim Kit turns your garage into a Boeing 737 cockpit

If you’ve never flown a real pilot training flight simulator, you’ll not know just how amazing the experience is. I’ve been lucky in that I’ve flown a full sized Boeing 747 commercial training simulator for an hour, and way back in the day a friend of mine gave me a lift in the jump seat of his Jumbo en route from New York to London.  And let me tell you, the two experiences were almost identical, except for the bumpy turbulence in the real thing.

There’s something magical about being in imaginary control of a 900,000 pound airliner soaring through the sky –  and for some the experience is so compelling they spend extreme amounts of time and money to recreate the feeling in their home, and that’s where this JetMax-737 Flight Sim Console Kit comes into play.

For around the price of a second hand car, you can buy a fully equipped single seat ‘desk’ which delivers all the controls you’ll need to project yourself into a Boeing 737 aircraft. You’ll need to add a couple of more essential bits of course, like as good a display system as you can afford, plus a computer and flight sim software; but once you’ve got it all assembled in your den or garage (or bedroom if you’re hardcore?), and you’ve added your chair, it’s time to take off from suburbia and see the world.

The price of the kits start at CAD $3495.95 and go up to CAD $6995.95, but you’ll need to add in budget for those essential extras. And in case you don’t get just how cool this kind of stuff can be, take a look at the following video which is a home setup running a proper ‘grown up’ kit. Amazing stuff.
