Slide 2: 

A cockpit is the area usually nearer the front of a piloted aircraft from which a pilot controls the aircraft . The cockpit is also commonly referred to as the flight deck . . ABOUT THE COCKPIT

Slide 3: 

Most modern cockpits are fully enclosed, except on some small aircraft, and cockpits on large airliners are also physically separated from the cabin . Cockpit as a term for the pilot's compartment in an aircraft first appeared in 1914 .

Slide 4: 

VC-10 (1960s) The Vickers VC10 airliner featured an analog cockpit, with old-style instruments.

Slide 5: 

Modern single-seat GLIDER cockpit

IN A COCKPIT : 

IN A COCKPIT The cockpit of an aircraft contains flight instruments, typically called a"instrument panel", and the controls which enable the pilot to fly the aircraft . In most large airliners, a door separates the cockpit from the passenger compartment(s) .

Slide 7: 

Cockpit windows may be equipped with a sun shield. Most cockpits have one or more windows which can be opened when the aircraft is on the ground . Nearly all glass windows in large aircraft have a Anti-reflective coating, and an internal heating element to melt ice .

Slide 8: 

The array of dials and switches in an aircraft cockpit can be rather daunting . Aircrafts carry with them some sophisticated navigation equipment that will permit operations even in thick cloud and at night .

Slide 9: 

As an aircraft is travelling in three dimensions, additional instruments are required for altitude, and rate of climb and descent . Lastly, pilots need to communicate with airfields and air traffic control. And so usually, two radio sets, (in case of failure) and also a Transponder are fitted .

Slide 11: 

A TYPICAL AIRPLANE COCKPIT The pilot sits inside the airplane in what is known as the cockpit .  There are many instruments and switches to operate things like radios so that the pilot can talk to the tower .

Slide 13: 

The pilot controls the airplane by using either a control wheel or a control stick .  These controls let the pilot move the elevators on the tail and the ailerons on the wings, which in turn move the airplane . .

Slide 14: 

The elevators move by pulling back and pushing forward on these controls .   When the pilot moves the controls to the right or to the left, the ailerons on the wings move up or down . On the floor of the cockpit are pedals that operate the brakes and rudder .
