MCP / Enhanced Autopilot


 


The MCP (Multiple Control Panel) is not a 1 : 1 copy of what you would find in a 737, but then, neither is the rest of my cockpit. On the other hand, it has all the right buttons in all the right places, and it works wonderfully with the PM software running in the background.

One thing missing, but due to be implemented in the near future is the wheel for dailing vertical speed (instead of the knob used now).

 

On the left is a close-up of the MCP. Note how the LCD displays are slightly tilted towards the pilot's position. This was necessary, because of the rather narrow lateral viewing angle of these displays.
