Above is Zulu Time!!
Welcome at Simbuilder.be
Thank you for visiting our site!
We welcome you on our site. Here you can find aviation information about how airplanes work, you can watch aviation video clips, and can follow our simulation project. So if you are interested in aviation and/or simulation and games, you have come to the right place.
Simbuilder.be was first started with the idea to sell simulation parts at cheaper prices, but this eventually seemed impossible task to do at that moment in time. Due to the high price of these parts. So eventually we started first with an online shop in aviation related merchandise, which we later on started selling on airshows as well. This was a lot of fun to do, and gave us an insight in what people are looking for if they are busy with an aviation related hobby. Priceless information for any business. Our business operated on these happenings for a few years, but due to the financial crisis the business closed and the selling activity's have come to a compleet stop since 2009!!
But this is not the end of Simbuilder.be. We plan on restarting our shop in the near future! Currently, we are moved to a larger location, and are renovating our future workshop. Here we are planning to build our sim projects.
Meanwhile Simbuilder.be will remain online, to supply aviation info, and give an inside view in our sim project, which in fact will be continued. You can follow these developments by visiting our site here or you can also check us at Facebook !!! On this brand new page, we post a lot of nice stuff. So check it out! And if you "LIKE" us, we'll keep you posted! ;-)
Our sim project called: Simbuilder's Virtual Sphere.
Our project is actually the first and main reason this site remained active. This flightsim project will be a complete new sim experience. Normally in DIY sim's you are unable to go beyond the usual flight sim capabilities,meaning the kind of sim that uses a moving platform. this will tilt in four direction with limited range. With Simbuilder's Virtual Sphere we are busy to do exactly that! To build a new type of DIY flight sim for private use only. One that is able to rotate 360į unlimited in every direction of movement (X,Y,Z). But a project of this magnitude has a lot of problems to over come before the build of such a simulator can be started. The most obvious one is of course,...money!! Here we will deal with via sponsors. Second on the list is workspace to be able to setup a workshop thatís large enough! We had a workshop, but this one showed to be to small. It was just enough to build the scale model. There for we are moved to a new location, which has a larger workshop. The old one was 50m≤ with the ceiling at 3.2m , and weíll go to one of 120m≤ with the ceiling at 4.5m !! From 2001 to 2013 I planned to build the prototype in my workshop down stairs. But the walls were only 260cm from each other!!! I needed at least 3 meters
My second priority and what I'm trying to accomplish with this site, is to build an aviation information site that meets every-oneís needs. You'll find updates at frequent intervals. Because of the fact that I'm an airplane engineer since 1996 I can refer to more then 20 years of experience in the field, hands-on! In that time I've worked on several airplane types, with three main types being; Boeing, Airbus, and Fokker. So if you need to know something about aviation, to be able to complete your sim project, fire away! I'll try answering with-in 24 hours.
Due to 9/11 issues, I don't go in depth on any airplane systems, for safety reasons, Iím sure youíll understand, but I'll try to give you some basic info to give you an answer on your question as good as possible.
So mail me your question at:
And I Don't hesitate to contact me, I'll try to answer your request ASAP
So surf around on our info site, and enjoy the ride !
V1,.. V2,.. Rotate !
Fly safe, seeyaa !
