• Interview With Steve Choi - VRInsight

    What are your top three selling products and why do you think they are the top three?

    V737 Overhead, Prop Cockpit Trainer and MCP Combo II Series ( Boeing MCP and Airbus FCU).

       

    What is the company's mission and vision?

    Which product is your flagship and why

    Prop Cockpit Trainer is our flagship. Prop Cockpit Trainer is an integrated propeller training device for individuals, a club or flying school. Customers want to practice and experience regardless of the time and space limit. And that it should be an affordable price.

    What makes your products unique from other hardware

    Our main developer knows well about flight simulation, FPGA design and that he knows how to integrate both. We manufacture products slim and portable.

    Development

    How do you choose your next project - inquiry from flight simmers, market search or other?

    As I told you, we have no real aviation experience. So before we develop a new product, we refer all requests from our customers and try to hear our reseller's opinion.

    Is all the hardware and software developed in the company?

    Yes.

    What do you find to be the most challenging and interesting aspects of a project?

    Production cost and its retail price. I, a developer and flight simmer, always consider "affordability". As experienced working engineer of electronics, I can make a flight simulation unit's circuitry easily. But making it as selling products is another. To make it good looking appreance and handling, the cost goes up higher than I expected.

    Which platforms do your products support FS2004, FSX, Prepar3D, X-Plane, other?

    Mostly FSX and some units still support FS2004. X-Plane and Prepar3D are partially compatible.

    Future

    How do you feel about the future of flight simulation in general?

    Unfortunately, the future of flight simulation is quite bright. Since we attended overseas show from 2008 in Belgium, it has been getting difficult to find young visitors. However, the aviation business is getting bigger so we may expect many serious young simmers.

    In what ways do you see development changing in the future?

    Aviation changes very slowly due to safety. We don't imagine there will be a significant change. But for the flight simmers, more integrated and affordable products will show up.

    Which new products do you have lined up in your pipeline?

    We are moving to jetliners. Our next product is Airbus Overhead (V320 Overhead) and we will make a more integrated unit for jetliners like a prop cockpit trainer - 2S.

    In General

    What is your favorite flightsim platform to use and why?

    FSX. Since FSX provides us better interfacing circumstance and relatively enhanced map data so far.

       

    What is your favorite product and why?

    My favorite is Flight Master Yoke. Reasonable price, good handling and sturdy.
