Flight simulator design

Fibreglass design and manufacturing

Flight simulator design

Lockheed Martin CFT commissioned us to design and manufacture the flight simulator fibreglass outer plating for their B767, B777 and B787 air plane types. This flight simulator system gives future pilots the opportunity to train in a realistic environment.

We were closely involved from an early stage of the design process of the flight simulator fibreglass outer plating and were able to reduce unnecessarily long lead times and keep high development costs to a minimum.

Designing products in glassfibre also offers the customer a lot of freedom in its design, while a good value for money during production. We have taken care of the entire design process of the simulator design. From initial sketch ideas, 3D design, master models, production moulds up to the production.

Among this type of flight simulator fibreglass outer plating we also helped designing and developing the outer plating for the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 / A330 types. Over the past years we produced about 50 pieces. Within the simulator industry we manufacture in addition to the fibreglass outer plating also components for simulation platforms for cars, helicopter gunships and F-16 ejection seats.

The design and production in fibreglass offers a number of advantages that contribute to high-quality products. As a result, fibreglass and composite are increasingly being seen in the automotive industry and more and more product designers, architects and engineers are using this material. You can think of applications such as fibreglass; interior design desks, machine hoods, engine hoods, displays, eye catchers, blow-ups, interior wall panels, building façade panels.

Below you will find the advantages of the properties of fibreglass;

  • It is light and strong.
  • Electrical and thermal insulating.
  • Does not conduct electricity or heat. 
  • Corrosion and chemical resistant.
  • Resistant to: weather conditions, temperature fluctuations, acids, bases. 
  • Low expansion coefficient.
  • Not magnetic.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Freedom in design.
  • High impact resistance.
  • Available in different colors.
  • UV resistant.
  • Very long life.
  • Good value for money.
