The interior of this Boeing 757 flight deck has been redesigned and modified as a single pilot flight deck to reserve space required for the motion platform.
The interior also includes an observer seat located on the left aft side complete with its very own window.
All lighting inside the cockpit is controllable by independent switches. Some of the lighting is dimmable for night flying.
The cockpit also has its own independent heating and cooling systems.
The pilot controls consist of a control wheel, rudder pedals, steering tiller, (2) throttles with reversers, speedbrake lever, flaps selector, and aileron & trim adjustment switches.
Flight instruments consist of EFIS, EADI, EHSI, primary instruments, clock, air data, EICAS messages and flight data recorder.
The outside visuals are powered by (3) high end computers driving (3) 22 inch flat screen displays. In addition, there are (2) large hi-def flat screen displays for the side views. See also: Graphics Generator Page.
Engines simulated are Pratt & Whitney model 2037.
Systems include controls, start, ignition, fuel, oil, thrust reverse, vibration, APU and EICAS messages.
Commercially purchased realistic enhanced Autoflight & AFDS system with 100% interfacing to Flight management system.
Aircraft flight model includes accurate thrust/drag modeling, real world engine out performance, weight & balance calculations, load management, and calculated performance model parameters.
Full flight management system provides waypoint simulations including:
SIDS/STARS/Approaches, VNAV logic, and accurate cost index calculations for LRC/ECON speeds.
Sub-systems include: hydraulics, electrical, cabin pressurization, cabin temp control, flap load relief protection, programmable IRU and full TCAS logic including traffic display on EHSI.
Primary steering control is provided by the left sidewall nose wheel steering tiller. Functional only on the ground, the tiller can turn the nose up to +/- 65 degrees in either direction. A pointer on the tiller assembly shows tiller position relative to the spring loaded center detent.
Avionics, gauges, and aircraft system simulation provided by the Level-D Simulations Software Group.
