    Perhaps the Ultimate Home Simulator?

    A friend of mine shared a picture of his new home simulator. He lives in Las Vegas, and had a new addition to his home constructed, and commissioned this B777 "home cockpit". ~$600,000 not including the building addition. It is run by six computers loaded with P3Dv4 (started with P3Dv3):

    It’s beautiful but 600K? That would buy you lessons to atp level and for the hours needed to be hired by an airline. Of course if there are physical disqualifications that’s a different story. Only thing I would change is to put full motion on it.

    this guy truly has the flight sim bug.

    Nice set up but man 600K, you can get half-arse motion from a Red Bird sim.

    Now that's what I call having "friends in high places" right there! He is either single or has a VERY understanding wife!

    He remains single, so he has no one to nag him about what he spends his money on.

    That's beautiful and if you have the budget, sure why not. Aesthetically, it appeals to my personal sense of design, and the technical build seems super clean. Nice work.

    I know from my own experience that I would probably feel a bit isolated committing to a single airplane but we do have a lot of options now days. If I had the money to build the building and the sim, I'd be looking at the big radial fighter/bomber version next.
