B737 Fixed Base Trainer (FBT) is definitely our flagship product.
This device is a fully enclosed turnkey flight simulator with all panels, controls and systems fully functional.
It is built using proprietary electronics and hardware designed primarily for heavy-duty use in professional environments, unlike "hobby" B737 cockpit simulators integrated from various parts found in online shops.
No shortcuts have been made and no efforts spared to achieve the level of realizm and functionality which surprises even the most experienced Boeing 737 type-rated pilots, used to Level D Full Flight Simulators.
Dummy components which can be often found on low-level or entertainment B737 flight simulators have no place in our devices. Even the alphanumeric displays on IRS, MCP and Radio Panels are custom-made to mimic OEM designs. Combined with innovative technologies like CANBUS it brings the simulation to the next level.
The B 737 FBT simulator is an interesting alternative to an expensive FTD / FFS, providing great training value.

Our B 737 simulator comes as an all-inclusive package: hardware, computers and software with on-site training, warranty, priority support and excellent after sale Customer Service.
Every part has been designed primarily for heavy-duty commercial use by our R&D team and is built and tested in-house. This ensures our products are mature and fully-compatible, what guarantees professional results, long term reliability, quick troubleshooting by our experienced support team and availability of spare parts if required. Having operated our own commercial B 737 FNPT II MCC FTD simulator - "GearUP!", we understand that the term 'uptime' is critical for a healthy business and we know how to deliver it.
Our flight simulators are literally 'turnkey' - ready to fly within 3 minutes after automatic startup, easy to manage without specialized knowledge or skills and they work all day long without issues. But if required, modular design of the cockpit facilitates easy maintenance and servicing.
Some people believe that a flight simulator can be easily built using various parts available online. That is not true as those are mostly "hobby" parts and merging them means a lot of experimenting, trials and errors and at the end of day, it will not give the same results as a B 737 turnkey simulator can offer.
We always deliver on time, on budget and to the highest standards and our Customers from around the world are ready to provide positive feedback on our work.
Using proprietary hardware gives us full flexibility of design and functionality. Most of other B737 flight simulators in this market segment, offer functionality not exceeding approx. 70% of our FTD and we are ready to demonstrate it during a test flight.
With our vast technical background in electronics, automatic control and robotics, we decided to not follow the beaten track using generic input/output (I/O) cards, but to develop proprietary hardware from the ground up. No dummy components are utilized and no functions downgraded due to technical limitations. What we deliver is a fully functional state-of-the-art B 737 cockpit simulator.
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 and should be avoided.
The nose section mimics the B737 nose in high detail. The structure is made of fibreglass and metal parts. On the outside, the simulator looks just like the real aircraft, with all windows reproduced in the correct shape, size and position, providing accurate out-the-window view. All connection points are well-organized and located centrally in front of the simulator for easy access. On the inside, highly-accurate fibreglass B 737 cockpit trim is fitted with professional matt paint finishing. All details including handles to adjust seat's position, emergency escape rope or spare bulbs stowage have been reproduced. This all creates an immersive simulator with a B737 cockpit environment reproduced and guarantees best-possible experience.
The nose section encompasses all avionics hardware, control panels, flight controls and pilots' seats. For durability, realizm and robustness, simworld utilizes fully-adjustable OEM B 737 seats, which are removed from real aircraft and refurbished by our engineers.
Surrounded by the Visual System, this flight simulator is a turnkey trainer for B737 pilots.
Our mechanical engineers have 15-20 years experience in designing production lines and vehicles for various industries. With this know-how, they have designed all the parts and flight controls' mechanisms for smooth heavy-duty operation for years.
The flight controls are one of the most important piece of the B 737 flight trainer. Pilots interact with and control the aircraft using flight controls in all phases of the flight, so accuracy, feel and handling are critical for the overall flight experience and training quality.
The design and operation of flight controls are based on OEM parts and cover full functionality as per the actual B737NG aircraft. This B737 simulator is equipped with coupled control columns and yokes, coupled rudder pedals with differential toe brakes, nose wheel steering wheel on one or both sides as required and a fully-motorized throttle unit.
Depending on Customer's specific needs, we can retrofit OEM B737 parts with either passive controls loading (standard) or advanced active controls loading (optional) systems.
Our attention to details has been acclaimed as "A superb bit of hardware. (...) Rolls Royce in cockpit parts." by the PC Pilot Magazine.
Since day one it has been our goal to deliver B 737 flight simulator parts which are a near-exact replica of the real B737 cockpit but at the same time they are reliable and affordable to keep training costs down - when acquiring, operating and maintaining the flight trainer.
For the best pilot experience and immersion, our modules have been reproduced with attention to minute details. It is a common question from those who see our B737 flight simulator for the first time - whether we use original aircraft parts? Of course we do not, as a single OEM module can easily cost as much as our whole simulator. To achieve this level, our design engineers use advanced tools for prototyping such as 3D scanning and printing and real-life Boeing 737 type rated pilots who work with us always consult new products and keep their eye on all details.
If you wish to learn more about specific parts and their features, you can visit the Components page. All pictures presented on our website show our B737 simulator and not the real cockpit!
A seamless image of 220 degrees projected on a professional screen, makes it one of the widest on the market. With additional features like advanced blending for realistic night scenes (usually not found on low-level simulators), simworld's B737 FTD meets quality standards for professional EASA / FAA approved flight training devices.
A number of hours for R&D has been invested to achieve positive results as this does not come down to simply extending the single-channel forward view onto 3 projectors. This requires tools, software, know-how and experience to achieve crisp, sharp and geometrically-correct out-the-window view.
The wraparound, 8 metres (26 ft) long seamless projection screen in cooperation with 3HD projectors offers ultimate results and provides correct visual cues to the pilots. The system is optimized for smooth performance using custom-built latest graphics, i9 processors and custom settings.
This all makes our B 737 Fixed Base simulator is an interesting alternative to an expensive FTD / FFS, providing great training value.
We know you have seen the real B737 cockpit, so we want to show how our simulator compares. In all galleries on our website we only show actual pictures of our B 737 flight 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.

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!
