    17" Wide screen monitor - where to find

    I am in the middle of building an A320 cockpit. I am having serious difficulty finding 17" widescreen monitors for the PFD and ND - one for the of the Captain Side and one for the FO side. No other size does the job (neither 17" square nor 19" widescreen).

    I tried everywhere, no luck. Looks like this size is extinct.

    So the question to those who have built A320 cockpit, did you manage to find these monitors, or did you find a solution around this bottleneck.


    Thanks for your feedback.

    You need to use 3x 19" 4:3 (square) LCD monitors, which are easily available.

    For the middle section, flip the LCD vertically.

    For the middle section, I already got a square 19" (flipped as you stated), but these will not fit in the side compartments behind the MIP. They will have substantial portions of them protruding either up or down.

    You will need to fit the glareshield into the protruding sections on the top.
