    Position of overhead

    Hello, Roberto.

    I am taking delivery of the overhead panel from FDS shortly and so I am having to think about its positioning.

    So as to help me, I wonder the next time you are flying you could look at what part of the overhead is directly above, let's say, the Engine Mode start switch (CRANK, NORM, IGN?START).

    And even better, if you could give me the height measurements of the overhead from 2 points on the pedestal (then not only could i hetthe height correct but also the slope)

    Best wishes,

    Darren Sugden

    Hello, Kevin. Are you, however, referring to the 737?
    Regards,

    I don't think the 737 and A320 would be the same. THey may be close but not the same....
