Toggles and Dials and Switches, Oh My!

This is a view of the dash on a flight simulator they have at the Aero Space Museum of Calgary. I’m sure this isn’t nearly as complex as what pilots look at on commercial jets, but there’s still an awful lot to pay attention to! I think on most days they allow guests to hop in and give it a go…maybe on my next visit I’ll give it a try.

Nice shadows on this one. and Dang, you’re right, that is a bunch to look at. Try and Google pics of cockpits on commercial jets… wow.

Sweet shot dude, love the processing choice…bit aged/dated looking like the plane’s cockpit itself.

great shot – I think you’d be okay jumping in – it looks like the autopilot is on 😉
