    Slope (angle) of the Pedestal?

    Hello.

    I am about to put together my pedestal but I am unsure of the slope of it from top to bottom.

    Do you think it is possible to measure the height of the pedstal at the top (where the MCDUs are located) and the height of the pedestal at the bottom (where the engine start switches are located)?

    Does the second part of the pedstal (where the flap lever is located) also have a slope or is it perfectly level?

    I realise it may be unusual (and difficult) for you to do this for me so if you can't don't worry about it!

    I thought I would ask anyway

    Thank you,

    Darren Sugden

    Hi, I will try to get those measurements you will have to be patient cause is not easy to explain teh captain about measuremnts taking and many I donŽt think will like the idea but IŽll try to do it!

    The second part of the pedestal is perfectly level just the other area is sloped wher flaps, Parking brake and speedbrake is located is all leveled!

    Regards,

    Roberto

    Thanks Roberto. Don't worry if you can't get the measurements. I fully understand the difficulty of my request

    Brian, the website was my first port of call to get the slope but unfortunately no info there.

    All the best to you both,

    Darren
