Since day one it has been our goal to deliver B 737 simulator parts which are a near-exact replica of the real B737 cockpit. Fully-functional, with no dummy parts and highly detailed.
It is a common question from those who see our B737 flight simulator for the first time - whether we use original parts? We do not, as a single OEM module can easily cost as much as our whole simulator! To achieve this level of accuracy, our design engineers use advanced tools for prototyping such as 3D scanning and printing and real-life B737 type rated pilots, who work with us, always consult new products and keep their eye on all details.
Our hardware utilizes all latest technologies which still remain innovative in flight simulation industry. This at the forefront is CANBUS communication as found in all professional applications which require high speeds and reliability, such as: aviation, automotive, maritime, military and space industries. Emulated-USB or COM ports and other obsolete technologies associated with "hobby" devices have no place in our simulators.
Below you can learn more about specific components we developed and their features.
Our attention to details has been acclaimed by the PC Pilot Magazine:
"A superb bit of hardware. (...) Rolls Royce in cockpit parts."
All pictures presented on our website show our B 737 simulators and not real cockpits!

- customized configurations available with optional annunciators: CABIN ALTITUDE, TAKEOFF CONFIG, FLAP LOAD RELIEF; custom placard with personal callsign or tailnumber; CLOCK/MIC switches; two types of clock modules and GPWS panels
Unique details not found elsewhere:
- custom-made LCD screens based on original designs (not 7-segment displays!)
- tactile mode selector buttons with accurate travel and feel (force and sound)
- tactile MIL-grade rotary encoders with accurate detents
- built-in backlight based on OEM technology
- adjustable panels' backlight and LCD screens' brightness
- solenoid A/T switch with spring-release to OFF
- aluminium knobs
Custom-built LCD screens based on original (OEM) designs allow correct representation of all digits (shape, colour and size) including special signs on the VSPEED window and SPEED window (over- and underspeed). Exactly as per the real B 737 cockpit. This feature was so far only found on highest-level simulators built from OEM parts.
Tactile Korry-style pushbutton switches mimic OEM switch's characteristics: look, force, travel distance when pushed and tactile 'click' sound. These are not ordinary microswitches as it is common in low-level simulators.

BEING A BOEING 737 AIRLINE PILOT, I AM FORTUNATELY IN A POSITION TO COMPARE THE SIMULATOR TO THE REAL THING. (...) PRODUCTS OFFERED BY SIMWORLD WOULD MAKE FOR A ROBUST FNPTII OR FBPT FOR ANY SCHOOL OR COMPANY LOOKING TO INVEST INTO A TRAINING SIMULATOR.

AFTER AN EXTENSIVE RESEARCH OF DIFFERENT FLIGHTSIMULATOR PROVIDERS, WE CHOSE SIMWORLD. THE REASON WAS DUE TO A VERY PROFESSIONAL AND PLEASANT APPROACH, REAL TURNKEY SOLUTION AND THAT SIMWORLD HAS FULL CONTROL OF THE SUPPLY CHAIN AND SPARE PART AVAILABILITY. WE GOT EVERYTHING WE WANTED AND ALSO A VERY GOOD SUPPORT AFTER DELIVERY. WE WARMLY RECOMMEND SIMWORLD AND THEIR STAFF!

A SUPERB BIT OF HARDWARE THAT'S EXPENSIVE, BUT WILL LAST A LIFETIME. THE BUILD QUALITY OF THE SIMWORLD IS SUPERB. THIS REALLY IS THE ROLLS ROYCE OF COCKPIT PARTS.
Jessica Bannister-Pearce / PC Pilot Magazine
I CONTACTED MANY COMPANIES. SIMWORLD WAS THE ONLY WHO ACCEPTED MY REQUEST TO VISIT THEM TO CHECK THEIR PRODUCTS. THAT GAVE ME A LOT OF CONFIDENCE. I RECEIVED MY COCKPIT AS DESCRIBED IN THE CONTRACT (QUALITY + TIMELINE). I HAD A REAL LIFE KUWAIT AIRWAYS PILOT WHO TOLD IT LOOKS LIKE A REAL COCKPIT.
I AM HAPPY BECAUSE MY CUSTOMERS ARE HAPPY.
GOOD JOB SIMWORLD, I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST!
