    Re: A320 colour code qestion?

    Thats a million dollar question.

    An on-line colour picker can determine the colour code of software, I have picked the FCU of 3 companies and got this:

    CP Flight = RGB 48, 66, 80
    FDS = RGB 141, 146, 149
    COCKPITSONIC = RGB 57, 80, 98 TO 48, 67, 84

    Re: A320 colour code qestion?

    Hi,

    A long time ago I read somewhere that the colours for Airbus should be RAL 5017 (German name Verkehrsblau) for the structure, and RAL 5014 (Taubenblau) for the panels. If I remember well, that is the colour Hispapanels are using.

    (Sorry, don't know the RGB values for these; but a RAL table is available somewhere on the Internet...)

    Regards,
    Hans

    Re: A320 colour code qestion?

    Hey Spiro,

    I would not get too hung up over the colour, the thing with airbus is that they changed the entire colour of the flightdeck, i dont know exactly when, the older a320 like the original winglet-less -100 series ones were a lighter blue colour, when the A330 and A340 came into service there decks were a much darker colour and the A320 followed soon after.

    Have a look at any pic on jetphotos.net and instantly you will see how the FCU/EFIS is a darker colour than the glare wings.

    Below is a pic to highlite the difference, the panel on the left is the flight deck door lock panel made in 2004 from a -200 aircraft, the panel on the right is a glare wing panel from an original -100 series aircraft



    I also hear RAL7031 is a close match, Alex if you can do the honour of converting it, but i have not tried this myself

    Hmm, that looks like the one on the left for me, so RAL7031 for newer aircraft and RAL5014 for the older aircraft

    Re: A320 colour code qestion?

    That is excellent news, now the other sim part manufacturers really have something to worry about!

    You must admit there is a massive market now for the A320, its VERY popular....very 2010 i'm thinking.....

    Check out darren sugdens website...amazing: http://www.sugden.karoo.net/page12.html
