    Cessna 172 Measurements

    Hi, I have been doing some research on Cessna 172 cockpit measurements and I have come up with a list of approximate measurements, these are only a guide and I am not responsible for inaccurate data. But it all helps.



    CABIN / FLOOR

    HEIGHT FROM FLOOR TO ROOF (INSIDE ROOF) = 124 - 125CM
    FROM RIGHT DOOR TO RIGHT OF CENTER CONSOLE DISTANCE = 37CM
    DISTANCE FROM PADDED LEFT DOOR TO PADDED RIGHT DOOR (AT HINGE) = 96CM
    WIDTH OF FLOOR AT START OF CENTER CONSOLE = 78CM

    (BECAUSE DOORS ARE PADDED THE DISTANCE BETWEEN DOORS IS GOING TO BE LESS THAN THE WIDTH OF THE MIP, JUST TO SAVE CONFUSION!)


    SEATS

    WIDTH FROM LEFT OF PILOTS SEAT TO RIGHT OF CO-PILOTS SEAT = 96CM
    DISTANCE FROM FRONT EDGE OF SEAT TO MIP = 57 - 58CM


    DOORS

    DOOR HEIGHT = 105cm
    DOOR WIDTH = 89cm


    GLARESHIELD

    WIDTH OF GLARESHIELD = 30CM (FROM FRONT OF MIP TO WINDOW)
    LENGTH OF GLARESHIELD = 105CM


    MIP

    MIP HEIGHT INCLUDING GLARESHIELD = 46 - 47CM
    MIP WIDTH INCLUDING GLARESHIELD = 105CM
    HEIGHT FROM FLOOR TO BOTTOM OF MIP = 48CM
    HEIGHT FROM FLOOR TO TOP OF MIP INCLUDING GLARESHIELD = 93CM


    CENTER CONSOLE

    CONSOLE HEIGHT = 47CM
    CONSOLE WIDTH = 16CM

    FUEL SELECTOR PANEL (FLOOR PART) = 12CM
    (MEASURING FROM CENTER CONSOLE TOWARDS YOU)


    RUDDER PEDALS

    FROM FLOOR TO TOP OF RUDDER PEDAL = 27.5CM
