A Sydney convenience store owner spent $100,000 converting his inner city shop into a fully-operational flight simulator that he hopes pilots can use for training.

Ahmed Nasreldeen, an aviation electronics engineer, moved to Australia from Egypt with his family in 2018 and purchased an EzyMart franchise on Elizabeth Street in the heart of the city's CBD.

Over the next three years he began buying the 2,000 pieces needed to build a to-scale Airbus A320 cockpit and, with the permission of convenience chain, build the simulator in the back of his store.

'I've had people passing by and say "what the f**k" and "wow what is that a flight simulator?",' Mr Nasreldeen told Daily Mail Australia.

'One woman even asked if it were a space ship.'
