The cockpit is also commonly referred to as the flight deck . . ABOUT THE COCKPIT Slide 3: Most modern cockpits are fully enclosed, except on some small aircraft, and cockpits on large airliners are also physically separated from the cabin . Cockpit as a term for the pilot's compartment in an aircraft first appeared in 1914 . Slide 4: VC-10 (1960s) The Vickers VC10 airliner featured an analog cockpit, with old-style instruments. Slide 5: Modern single-seat GLIDER cockpit IN A COCKPIT : IN A COCKPIT The cockpit of an aircraft contains flight instruments, typically called a"instrument panel", and the controls which enable the pilot to fly the aircraft . In most large airliners, a door separates the cockpit from the passenger compartment(s) . Slide 7: Cockpit windows may be equipped with a sun shield. Most cockpits have one or more windows which can be opened when the aircraft is on the ground . Nearly all glass windows in large aircraft have a Anti-reflective coating, and an internal heating element to melt ice . Slide 8: The array of dials and switches in an aircraft cockpit can be rather daunting . Aircrafts carry with them some sophisticated navigation equipment that will permit operations even in thick cloud and at night . Slide 9: As an aircraft is travelling in three dimensions, additional instruments are required for altitude, and rate of climb and descent . Lastly, pilots need to communicate with airfields and air traffic control. And so usually, two radio sets, (in case of failure) and also a Transponder are fitted . Slide 10: Tiger light aircraft – modern STANDARD PANEL Slide 11: A TYPICAL AIRPLANE COCKPIT The pilot sits inside the airplane in what is known as the cockpit .  There are many instruments and switches to operate things like radios so that the pilot can talk to the tower . Slide 13: The pilot controls the airplane by using either a control wheel or a control stick .  These controls let the pilot move the elevators on the tail and the ailerons on the wings, which in turn move the airplane . . Slide 14: The elevators move by pulling back and pushing forward on these controls .   When the pilot moves the controls to the right or to the left, the ailerons on the wings move up or down . On the floor of the cockpit are pedals that operate the brakes and rudder . Slide 15: COCKPIT OF CESSNA 172 GLASS COCKPIT : GLASS COCKPIT A glass cockpit is an aircraft cockpit that features electronic instrument displays .
