Pick a Plane, any Plane.

Have you ever wondered what the controls of a aircraft do?
Well . . . boy, have you come to the right place!

Flight Deck Simulations

For the first time, digital computers were used by engineers to design and electronically pre-assemble the entire airplane, increasing accuracy and improving quality.

777 Flight Deck

The 767 is produced in three fuselage lengths. The original 767-200 entered service in 1982, followed by the 767-300 in 1986 and the 767-400ER, an extended-range (ER) variant, in 2000.

767 Flight Deck

The four-engine 747 uses a double deck configuration for part of its length. It is available in passenger, freighter and other versions.

747 Flight Deck

It has been around for a very long time, and it is still the workhorse for the Boeing line of planes.

737 Flight Deck

The A320 family pioneered the use of digital fly-by-wire flight control systems, as well as side-stick controls, in commercial aircraft.

Airbus A320

Airbus manufactured the A340 in four fuselage lengths. The initial, A340-300, which entered service in 1993, measured 194.8 ft. The shorter 200 was developed next, and the A340-600 was a 52.2 ft stretch of the −200.

It’s FINALLY here. The largest passenger jet ever built.

Fokker D-VII
Take a look at a World War I biplane fighter cockpit simulation.

The Fokker File is loading a wee bit on the slow side. I’ve cut it down to size as much as I can.

General Dynamics’s F16
Ever wondered about the origin of the name F-16 Fighting Falcon?

In 1976, the Department of the Air Force had organized a “Name-the-Plane Contest” for the F-16 at MacDill AFB in Florida. The winning entry was submitted by TSgt. Joseph A. Kurdell, the Photo Sensor Shop Supervisor for the 1st TFW A&E sqn.

AH-64D Apache
The world’s premier attack helicopter.

It was designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.

Charles Lindbergh’s Cockpit
He flew cross a big ocean, all along. And he did it in this, cramped, little cockpit. I would have had to Pee!

B-29 Superfortress Cockpit
The Enola Gay flew it’s very first mission, targeting a city – Hiroshima… with an atomic bomb.

Cessna’s X
It is the fastest operational civilian jet in the world, cruising just shy of the sound barrier at Mach .92. At least, it was the fastest the last time I checked?

Nothing New

Who knows, maybe one day I’ll add another deck.
Until then, enjoy what’s already here!

    Hi Jerome,
    great site – not the flightdecks only – nice pictures and Photoshop examples as well!
    Of course the 747-400 is of special interest!
    Thanks for compiling and best regards from Vienna

      Though, most of the people who come to my website, only come to view the Flight Deck pages, it’s nice to see that every once in awhile, somebody also looks at my portfolios, and leaves a good comment about them.

      Thanks! I’m glad that you enjoyed my site.

    Hello Jerome,
    Your page meriweather.com is always a great source of information.  I was wondering if we will se the B787 flight deck soon.
    Best regards and keep up the good work.

      I haven’t done much with my Flight Deck Simulation site for a few years. Though I’ve added a new Fokker D-VII Flight Deck to my website a couple of weeks ago, that was mostly for “Testing” out a new piece of software that I had.

      I don’t see myself adding a 787 flight deck anytime soon. Sorry

      But thank you for writing a great comment about my Meriweather.com site.

    Dear Jerome,
    Since childhood your website added fuel to my inborn aviation instincts a great piece of art work. May Almighty God bless you for this unique piece of work, Jerome seriously wished if I could get Information on flight decks of B-787 and A350-XWB, from your website. I will wait for it , Jerome I wanted your mail id since i want to communicate to you in personal.

    Thanks and Kindest Regards
    Yaman ..

    Hey Jerome
    just got to say that your efforts are truly helpful. i refer to your A320 cockpit simulations to update myself ever so often !
    keep up the good work.

    I’m building the overhead panel for the. Boeing 767. Your drawings are great. You know what’s missing? Dimentions or a scale on the picture that would allow us to build it to scale. I am working with a CAD program & trying to draw the diferent modules with all. The holes to scale. Then I could get it cut by waterjet. Any chance you could give us a scale ? Thanks.

      Some of the cockpits do have dimensions though I don’t remember if the 767 flight deck does.

      Sad to say, I’ve given up working on my Flight Deck Simulation web site. To much work and I no longer have access to the source material that I use to have.

      What you see right now is pretty much all that there will be in the future.

    Ya great website very helpful for future pilots. Just wondering does the MAN start button can it function in starting the airbus’ engine?


    • Jerome says:

      Thanks for visiting my site Bryan.

      It’s been many years since I have worked on my Flight Deck pages and my familiarity with the flight manuals is slowly slipping away.

      I believe that button was part of the process of starting the engine, but you should check with another source to verify the accuracy of that.

      I believe that you will find what you’re looking for on my A320 Flight Deck page. Just click “Flight Decks” in the menu to the left. On the page that shows up, click the A320 Tab, then click “Airbus’s A320 Flight Deck”.

      When you’re on my A320 page you can either click the “Pedestal” menu or scan your mouse over the image until you find the MCDU in the image, an then click on that.

    You have a very informative and fantastic website. Can you help me find part list or component list for 767 Glareshield specifically the parst for 767 Model Control Panel (MCP) B767.

    Best Regards,


    • Jerome says:

      Thanks for the comment.

      I no longer do any work on my Flight Deck Simulation Web Site so it’s been a few years since I’ve been around in that world.

      But I do know that there are a lot of people who build real working Flight Decks in their home or garage, and those people are all over the internet.

      Contact those people and I have no doubt that they will be able to provide you with a parts or component list on the airplane of your choice.

    thank you for such a great work.
    can you please assist in finding a : A320 MCDU emulator (software) to be used on my laptop to do Test to the aircraft sys. I’m doing my maintenance training on my own.
    I highly appreciate your kind reply.
    Thank you,
    Best Regards,

      You can type “A320 MCDU emulator” into just about any online search engines, like Google, and come up with a number of sites that offer what you’re looking for.

      Thank you for your comment.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!


    • Jerome says:

      Nickole, I created my site using WordPress.

    10,000 feet is correct. The cabin altitude is controlled by pressurization. As the 747 flies much higher than 10,000 feet in cruise, the cabin altitude is kept around 8,000 feet so that you can breathe normally. If the cabin altitude exceeds this and goes over 10,000, the passengers may not be able to breathe without supplemental oxygen. That would be considered an emergency, so the signs then come on automatically.

    Hey Jerome
    your legend on the seatbelts control on the 747 says the …”Signs come on automatically when cabin altitude exceeeds 10,00 feet.”

    … i am only an interested surfer and so i don’t know what that is supposed to be … 1,000 feet is my best guess – but that must be wrong… i believe its reasonable that the signs would be on _automatically_ way before we got up to 1000’… and would they then go off as we descend through 1000?? Think not!! So maybe it is 10 feet… so only if we got a flat [[pair of] tyre[s]] would they go out…. :-)))…

    Nothing is important. Everything is possible.



    • Jerome says:
      2012-0621 at 1:20 pm

      It’s been so long since I have worked on my Flight Deck pages, that I had to go looking for the old 747-400 manual.

      But no, ”Signs come on automatically when cabin altitude exceeds 10,000 feet.” is exactly what it says for those knobs. So it was a typo and I’m going to have to add a 0.

      Thanks for your comment, Greg.
