Thread: Parking Brake
03-09-2007, 09:27 AM #1
This is my first post here but while lurking I have noticed how friendly and helpful everyone is. This is a great forum.
I'm in the last stages of building an EMB 170 style parking brake and I'm trying to determine the length of the handle. Every picture I can find of it is taken from the same angle (Cockpit Door) and none seem to have something near it I can use as a reference. I am guessing it is about 4 inches (100mm) but it could be as short as 3" or as long as 5+".
If anyone knows the size or can point me to some pictures of the pedestal take from the side I would be most thankful.
I am going to have the same problem (dimensions running front to back) on my next project, the throttle.
Thanks in advance,

my first port of call for info of flight decks is www.airliners.net & by what i can see is it is about the lenght of your hand with your thumb in front which for me is about 100mm ( & i have big hands!!!!)
