Cockpit Overview

3. Centre Instrument Panel (IP-C)

In the Centre Instrument Panel are the Up Front Controller (UFC), the HUD control panel, the Multi-Purpose Colour Display (AMPCD) and the Lower Instrument Panel.

In this Basic Course only a few of the functions are needed. We will only discuss or use the functions for start-up and a safe circuit in this course.  

The rest will be discussed in the Advanced courses, but it is advantageous if you can orientate yourself with the whole cockpit from the beginning.
