Cockpit Types

Mon Jun 05, 2006 12:34 am

Is it posible to have a cockpit that has mixed controls: half not GLASS, half GLASS?  Smile

Well, that all depends on your definition of "glass", but generally yes!

Quite a few GA aircraft have setups like this, and as for an example in commercial aviation, the A300-600 does as well.

That's whay I said it depends on what you mean by "half glass." I'm not aware of any A3xx series (or actually any large airliner) with a Captain glass, FO steam setup.

Do you know of any smaller carriers who have refitted airplanes with glass only on the Captain's side? I'd imagine there might be a few out there.

Its reffered to as Semi-glass ie on the B737-300/400/500s.
Not yet seen a Divided Cockpit yet.

There are tons of aircraft out there that are like that - lots of King Airs have EFIS on the Captain's side, and a conventional T-layout on the F/O's side. In fact, most of the new-build King Airs came equipped as such until very recently, if I'm not mistaken.

In fact, here are two examples:
