There are whole companies that exist to relocate multimillion dollar Full Flight Simulators but operators of, and second hand purchasers of General Aviation simulators are usually stuck contracting the original manufacture, or taking on the job themselves.
Moving a flight simulator requires careful planning and execution. Most simulators are not only fragile, but very complex. If moved improperly they can develop significant issues. Before beginning planning is detailed required, each step should be planned before any of them are carried out. When carried out they should be verified to have been carried out correctly. The simulator must be tested to determine performance before and after moving. Depending on the nature of the move, and the certification of the simulator it may be required to seek a new regulatory approval when when the simulator is up and running at it's new location.
- Baseline testing
- Acceptance testing
If you have multiple locations which it would be useful to have a flight simulator at you may not need to pick just one. It can be very beneficial to have a simulator in a trailer which you can easily tow between locations, or have moved by a transport company.
NexGen Simulation's parent company has a division which is an OEM trailer manufacturer. As such we can have produced custom trailers not only to transport your simulator, but also to operate it from. This can be especially useful for operators who wish to keep their simulator at a location only for a short period of time.
