A new series for the GA pilot - Part 1
If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that over the past few issues I explained how I built a 737 cockpit in my home. This was not so much a tutorial, more a timeline of the process and what’s needed to complete such a project. From the feedback we received, some readers suggested that we look at a more basic project, one that perhaps focuses on the type of aircraft that real pilots cut their teeth on. So, over the next few issues I’ll try to do that, starting with a fairly simple and inexpensive panel like those you would find in a typical GA aircraft, similar to those found in the Cessna 152, 172 or the Piper PA-28.
