This Cockpits Section is being “restructured” so as to allow more photos to be placed, comments from readers, easier access when searching, and status updates if provided. Existing photos in this column will be moved to their individual pages with original submission dates gradually.

Format preferred :

  • JPEG
  • Your Name
  • Your location: Country and City
  • ICAO code of your location
  • A short description of your cockpit & your hardware

The idea of this section is to show how we setup our gears, no matter if they are simple, advanced or professional.  So the photos (at least one) are better to be in a lighted environment even though LEDs shinning in the dark look attractive.

Note that your photos may be cropped or PS due to posting needs.

  1. Hi Tom,
    In all to photo’s I have seen and not just on this site of Cessna cockpits I have never seen any with a park brake handle under the yoke.


  2. Hi Tom, just assembled 19 Saitek panels (!) in my Main Instrument Panel + I have 2 Saitek Throttles, Saitek Cessna Trim Wheel, TrackIR Pro and pilot headset to add into the mix! I have not yet installed drivers and connected to the PC (big bang approach due soon…).

    I noticed your hubs are USB 2.0 – I purchased two 10xUSB 3.0 hubs and just had a horrible thought that Saitek may be fussy about 2.0 vs. 3.0…. do you have any experience or knowledge of this? My friend Google didn’t shed much light on the searches I just did. Work pressure may delay me testing this out but I will get to it soon and find out if you are not sure!


    1. Hi Dean,
      I am afraid that you may have trouble plugging in your Saitek stuffs into 3.0 USBs. As far as I know that Saitek equipment do react strangely while using 3.0 USB.


      1. Thanks, Tom.
        Oh dear that does not sound good…! My PC only has USB 3.0 slots as well. Thanks for the heads up, I will research more and come up with a ‘Plan B’
        Kind regards,


      2. Unless you are using the latest Mac, there should be USB 2.0 on board, even new computer. Better check with your PC config.
        Also, you may still be able to get a PCI USB 2.0 card.


      3. You are of course, a genius, Tom! I have a Gigabyte P2542G laptop (will get a dedicated PC later), and one of slots is eSATA/USB(2.0) Combo. So will just need to get 2.0 hubs – and maybe one of the PCI cards you mention for the 2nd bank of 10 usb’s. Thanks again.


  3. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up
    and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.


    1. Hi Brian, sorry for late reply. Just found your message in the Spam folder.
      Regarding the missing pics, could you be more specific? I don’t have problem viewing there here.
