It is our first simulator and will always have a special place in the Museum. When we get FFS and CPT they will all dwarf this one, but it will always be the first in our collection.
The first task was to paint it and make it ready for the Boundary Bay Airport Air Show on July 27th, 2013. It was decided to paint the aluminum part (on one side) as well.
It was primed and painted and so was the rest of the simulator. we cannot afford a plexiglass canopy for now, so that is being painted.
We are installing a door in the nose (there was a cover plate with 28 screws) and we wanted easy access to the computer that is going to run the FS program etc. The opening was widened so we can get in with both arms and plug in cables, switch the computer on/off.
The finished simulator will have a Royal Canadian Air Force decal on one side and the Museum logo on the other.
Due to time constraints the simulator will not be working when we display it, it will attract attention to our booth and we will have it in working order later this year.
