Builder Notes

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 surfaces was acquired. The following are notes on the build process to bring the genuine parts back to life, interfaced as a working flight simulator.
