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.
Avionics and flight controls have been designed by our R&D engineers for heavy-duty training use, often utilizing OEM (original aircraft) parts. Every part of this B737 FTD is built in-house, what ensures full quality control and quick access to spare parts. Having operated our own commercial B 737 FNPT II MCC flight simulator - "GearUP!" since 2015, we understand that the term 'uptime' is critical for all commercial operations and we know how to deliver it.
Our B 737 flight simulator is a literally 'turnkey system'. Using intuitive interface, automatic startup and predefined scenarios, it is ready to fly within 3 minutes after power up, so your instructors and students can take the most of their session's time. All scenarios (time and weather, position, approaches, abnormal situations) are easy to manage via the IOS interface. Utilizing and maintaining our B737 flight simulator do not require any specific skills, knowledge or on-site technicians and in case of any issues, its modular design facilitates easy maintenance and servicing. Our reliable support team makes everything to prevent you from flying in turbulences and usually handles support requests on the same day.
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.
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.

Our mechanical engineers have 15-20 years of experience in designing production lines and vehicles for various industries. With this know-how, they designed the parts and mechanisms based on OEM parts or employed actual OEM parts for smooth operation for years.
The flight controls design is based on OEM parts and covers full functionality as per the actual B737 NG aircraft. Our B737 FTD simulator is equipped with coupled yokes and control columns with stick shakers, coupled and adjustable rudder pedals with differential toe brakes, nose wheel steering wheel(s) and a fully-motorized throttle unit.
Depending on Customer's specific needs or regulatory requirements the flight controls can be equipped with either passive or advanced active loading, using retrofit OEM parts.
The passive system provides averaged in-flight forces while the active one is capable of simulating:
- Hydraulic failures including full manual reversion,
- Autoflight (A/P and CWS modes),
- Neutral shift (stab and aileron trim).
This functionality is fully reproduced as found on a type specific B 737 FTD / FFS flight simulator, providing similar training value and experience.
The IOS is a fully-enclosed cockpit extension with seats for one instructor and two observers.
It provides ergonomic working environment with B737 FTD control panel (auto startup and shutdown) and two large touchpanels for easy session management. The IOS is air-conditioned and equipped with RFID access control, video monitoring, fire protection system and automatic emergency lighting and door unlocking. The cabin’s size can be customized to individual requirements.
The IOS's interface is clear and intuitive and organized in a layout similar to a Level D B 737 full flight simulator for quick fmiliarization. Functionality includes:
- Repositioning with predefined positions (runways, gates, approaches)
- Time, season and weather control with presets
- Weight and balance adjustment
- Low visibility operations, windshear recognition and recovery training, TCAS exercises
- Vast selection of simulated malfunctions (e.g. V1 cuts, FMC fail, engine & APU fire)
- Flight freeze and pause
- Session recording with graphs for debriefing
A seamless 220 x 40 degrees direct projection system is one of the widest on the market. Additional features like advanced blending for realistic night scenes (not found on low-level simulators) make it exceed regulatory requirements and provide correct visual cues to the pilots.
The Image Generator of our B 737 FNPT II MCC / AATD simulator is supplied by Lockheed Martin.
It includes a worldwide database with 24900 airports with 40 detailed cities and airports.
The Navigation Database (FMS's database) is availavle with regular updates to match real-world AIRAC cycles with optional access to navigation charts.
Depending on Customer's specific needs or regulatory requirements, design of the system can be adjusted to achieve greater Field of View (FOV) or reduce parallax errors by changing the screen's parametres or using collimated or Level D display systems. Custom configurations can be discussed, so that the simulator can meet higher requirements and qualify for a type specific B 737 FTD.
We know you have seen the real B737 cockpit, so we want to show how our FTD 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.

THE COCKPIT IS ALMOST SAME AS THE REAL AND FFS AND WE ARE SATISFIED WITH THE EASE OF USE – WE ONLY NEED TO TURN ON THE POWER. THE FTD IS USED OVER 700 HOURS A YEAR AND WE RECEIVED POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM TRAINEES. THE ENTRY LEVEL OF FFS TRAINING HAS BEEN IMPROVED AND CAN BE PERFORMED MORE EFFICIENTLY THAN EVER.
Hirotsugu Takahashi / Solaseed Air
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!
