In my book, HotSeat's Flight Sim Chassis just might be the world’s best, if not the most expensive flight simulator made for individual use. It has a tubular steel frame with six speakers and 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound, with the center channel and subwoofer under the seat.
The built-in custom PC makes gives you the feeling of flying as it displays virtual skies on the trio of 22-inch LCD monitors in front of the seat — creating a 66-inch panoramic view. The flights are made possible by some serious hardware: a quad-core processore, an NVIDIA 512MB graphics card, 4GB of RAM, and Microsoft FS X Deluxe Edition with the Acceleration Expansion Pack preinstalled.
Even better, the software is FAA-approved for a Basic ATD Flight Simulator, so pilots in training can log up to 2.5 hours toward their pilots' licenses. The sim is available now, and cheaper than most airplanes at $17,250.
