    Re: C172 Cockpit design specifications

    I would like to ask if anyone knows good reference materials or links for light aircraft cockpit lay-outing. That should include where to properly place instruments in accordance to air laws and pilot advantages. I am planning to use the materials for my upcoming aircraft design subjects in college.

    Thank you very much.

    Re: C172 Cockpit design specifications

    MIL-STD-1333 "Aircrew Station Geometry for Military Aircraft" might be of some use to you. Although it's been cancelled, it provides basic information of human factors in aircraft. (Google has a download link for it.)

    The FAA website www.faa.gov has quite an assortment of publications. You'll have to dig a bit, but might turn up something usefull.
