Fighter Jet Cockpits (16 pics)

Posted in Pictures   27 Oct 2010   / 25434 views

If you’ve ever wondered what the cockpit of a fighter jet looks like, here’s your chance to see some. It’s a wonder that they know what to do. It is amazing how many knobs, switches, levers, and displays there are.

Count the amount of buttons on your internet explorer. A lot! but because you use it often you do not notice.

Clever answer #1, but I am a witness of how hard the jet pilots should study to learn all that stuff. They are studying like geeks in a university and they take exams. If you think, not knowing a button of explorer doesn't make you fall from the sky :p

You can count many things that need knobs, switches, levers, and displays in a jet to control and monitor, aviation stuff, fuel, engines, wheels, weapons and fighting, communication, radar, emergency, and other things, but it's the man who will employ all of them..

No wonder you have to be an officer to pilot one of these.

Is there a reason why the MIGs have that teal color?

Beautiful stuff! =)

And not only do you need to know what the buttons and knobs do, you also have to know which electrical buss they are connected to and where that power comes from.

Yes, you need to be a geek. I was, now I fly civilian jets and loving every second of it! =)

Check out the B-52 Bomber. Totally beats these little dinky fighter cockpits.

Look at the new aircrafts, especially Airbus. Most actions are made by the aircraft. More and more glass are introduced.
In the Embraer I fly the only clock-like instrument in the cockpit is the clock.

Everything easy to read and automation of things I do not need to do myself.
