Many cockpit videos (Pilots Eye, Just Planes World Air Routes) include a section where pilots explain various systems, how they work and how they are hadled.

Also you might find some materials on

the 737 is not quite a modern airliner, but this website describes and explaines all the aircraft systems and the corresponding cockpit indications and controls


does anyone know a similar website for the MD11? I only know which isn´t nearly as comprehensive
