Last year’s meeting was a huge success, with Viperpit members attending from all over the world. JJ is an amazing host- scheduling briefings by real Viper pilots, in addition to having members’ F16 Cockpits & latest projects on display among all those Ferraris.
It is a great time to share ideas & meet your fellow Viperpits members!
Don't miss this year's meeting!
For further information on this year’s meeting, click on the heading above, or send a personal message to JJ on the forum.
Hotel reservations still available, but don't wait too long to book a room

Due to on-going difficulties obtaining Jason's Stencil plans, Viperpit members have decided to develop their own "Community" Cockpit Plans, based on existing forum & internet postings, and USAF F16 Trainer dimensions. These plans would be similar to the popular "Brenda's ACES II Plans"
We are currently gathering as much detailed information as possible. Members are encouraged to post any non-copyrighted plans, photos, sketches, or actual measurements into this Topic Thread.
Soon, we will begin CAD drawings, and finally create a set of DIY plans. VERY EXCITING WORK HERE!
We don't see many Rear-Seat (F16B or F16D) pits. Great work here.
Goofy found a real ACES II to add to his pit, and enlisted help from his local seamstress to complete his Seatback Cushion
(every pitbuilder needs a Mums' help from time to time!)
Last September, Viperpit members collaborated on a "Covert Op" to secretly buy Ka-Bar03 this F16 Trainer, in appreciation for bringing us this website.
The trainer is an older F16A (block 15) which Mike plans to upgrade to F16C
Thank-you for all your individual contributions that made this possible!
Salaxi54 is building his pit from scratch, using simple materials- from ACES II, Seat Cushions, Inertia reel rollers, FDR, Bailout Oxygen (Bottle, Control Regulator, Bracket, Pull Ring), Shoulder Harness Release, Manual Chute Release Handle, Ballistic Hoses, Seat Rails & Roller... Plus earlier posts include scratch built Block 60 CPD, CP Vent, Center Pedestal, Flight Control Stick, and Rear A/C Vents... this is a "MUST SEE" topic. Amazing craftsmanship from simple, readily available materials!
When asked to put together a quick desktop, RD used Logitech G15 keyboard, TM MFDs and an old XKeys USB keypad to build this desktop console. Obviously, his award winning Hi-Definition Full Cockpit took much longer to build. Check out his full Build Thread - over 80 pages, attracting more than 200,000 views!
Martin's earlier works include RWR (using new round LCD) and his DED / PFLD.
Top notch "German Engineering" (with a little help from his friends)!
More to come- NEWS is still under construction - at least 10 more items to code...
including pit updates from Bluc69, Pence, Thunder, Wolverine, AlbertJ, MikeM, Ski, Henkie, and JJ... Building techniques on Digitrans, replacing bulbs with LEDs, and rumors of soon to be released new BMS features for TWP panels
