Welcome to the Tripacer Simulated Cockpit Project.


Long ago, I learned how to fly in a Piper Tripacer. I am now building a simulated cockpit of that airplane. Using materials found at various home centers and bits of things from my shop, I am well on my way to fabricating a 100% full size replica of the cockpit. 


I will use Microsoft Flight Simulator to drive the simulation of flight and other parameters. I intend to interface the simulation to a complete set of instruments and controls.

Stay tuned as I work through the engineering and computer projects and problems!
