The Pima Air and Space Museum wisely acquired a cockpit. Children love it. This cockpit comes from the Airline Training Institute. Internet searches on the Airline Training Institute only returned monthly advertisements from 1980 and 1981 in Flight International magazine. ATI advertised themselves as the Wolrd’s Largest most complete independent Boeing 707 Training Center. They offer Flight Engineer rating, “AB Intitio thru ATP Type Ratings 707/727/737/DC-9 F.E. 707/727/747” and “Approved for Veterans.” Their address 2121 Camino Real San Mateo CA 94403 now stands an 11 story office building built in 1974. Tower plaza is 12 minutes and 9.4 miles away from San Francisco International Airport. Rents are $59.40/SF/Yr.
Instrument panels follow a standard layout. US Code of Federal Regulations, Title 14, Part 91 dictates how cockpit instruments should be laid out. Pilots may refer to the cockpit as the flight deck. The primary flight display or PFD stands behind the joystick. The PFD is the six pack of gauges required on all aircraft of that period:
Airspeed Indicator (Pitot Static)
Attitude Indicator (Gyro)
Altimeter (Pitot Static)
Vertical Speed Indicator (Pitot Static)
Heading Indicator (Gyro)
Turn Coordinator (Gyro)
A pitot-static system are pressure-sensitive instruments that determine an aircraft's airspeed, Mach number, altitude, and altitude trend. A gyroscope (from Ancient Greek γῦρος gûros, "circle" and σκοπέω skopéō, "to look") is a device that measures or maintains orientation and angular velocity. The Foot pedals more the rudder of the aircraft. If the cabin loses pressurization above 12,500 ft the oxygen masks help the pilot breathe. Most systems now are glass systems meaning they are all computerized.
