Tim:

Great on more but only 2 posted under this thread. This list is compiled on who put there projects here. I have more data from their post like Nationality totals and if they had more than 1 project each is included. I still need a little work on it.

This could be usefull as a matrix for determining parts demand for future cockpit projects

Norman, I can't find your post under this thread...

Hey,
When we check the above list of projects , the B737 projects are overwelming.

I wondering why so many builders are using that aircraft type, comparing with the other Boeing types. I don't think it is a matter of high realistic addon sources, as neither the pmdg B737 of B744 has excelent interface possiblities.

So their must be another reasons, I'm really curious about this

Some ideas that "might" explain the choice

The 737 is more conventional to fly than Airbus ( Airbus fly by wire is not that easy to get used to and takes a good while to master)

The 737 has a nice glass cockpit which has the option of displaying analog instruments for the steam gauge diehards

The 737 can land and take off from many more airports than a 777/747

The 737 is very flexible and can be used for short/ medium/long haul compared with the Heavies which are designed for transcontinental/transoceanic flights....and have to be flown with irrealistic fuel loads if one does not want to stay for hours in the cockpit!

The 737 cockpit is of a nice size, not too small, not too big and the footprint of a cockpit is a main issue to a lot of builders.

My 2 cents

AND a fantastic reason is because the 707,727, 737 all have the same nose section (for those who want a real shell like Im working on), with the same yokes and columns (for the most part!) and they are easy to find real parts for because of this reason. Like for example, I have a real tiller handle, and I dont know if it's from a 72 or 73, but it doesnt matter cause as far as I know, they are the same.
