Airbus A330 cockpit
Cockpit of an Airbus A330 airliner. The A330 is a twin-engine, widebody airliner typically flown over long-haul routes with a capacity of 253-295 in three-class layout. The 'glass' cockpit is highly computerised. All of the primary flight instruments are displayed on square computer screens, as are checklists and navigation data. In place of the conventional yoke or wheel, the aircraft is flown by a 'side-stick', a joystick like device fitted to the side of the pilot's knee. The first flight of the A330 was in 1992, as of mid-2011 over 800 had been built with orders for more than 300 outstanding.
