In early 2016 a genuine throttle quadrant and pedestal from a retired ANA A320 aircraft arrived. Shortly after, panels for the pedestal, overhead, main instrument panel, and flight control surface inputs were added to the simulator. On November 19th, 2017 parts from an TAM Airbus A319 (PT-MZC – MSN 1092) and a SilkAir A319 (9V-SBD) were acquired.
The following are notes on the build process to bring the genuine parts back to life, interfaced as a working flight simulator.
