Do-it-yourself, user-customizable instrument panel for computer flight simulation hardware.

If you're one of those flight sim fanatics who takes your computer aviating seriously, our Flight Training Cockpit Advanced Panel is just the item that'll take your PC piloting closer to reality than you ever thought possible. Fabricated from powder-coated, aircraft-grade sheetmetal; this purpose-built panel features 10 pre-cut, pop-out square tabs designed to accommodate up to 10 of Saitek Industries' 3.5", full-color LCD Pro Flight Instrument Panel (FIP) displays. Alternatively, the panel can house a Hannspree HL161ABB 16-Inch Screen LED Monitor in lieu of the Saitek FIPs.

In addition, our Advanced Panel features four pop-out rectangular tabs on the right side that are perfect for up to four Saitek Pro Flight Multi, Radio, Switch, and/or Backlit Information Panels (BIPs). Works perfectly with Microsoft Flight Simulator X, and will also support X-Plane 9/10 with 3rd party plugins. A robust, user-friendly aviation simulation solution for a level of hands-on control you would have never thought possible.

From the Manufacturer

The Flight Training Cockpit Advanced Panel offers a cockpit-realistic way to mount Saitek Pro Flight Simulation Instruments and Controls.

The twist-and-remove pre-cut tabs allow you to add Saitek hardware to your Advanced Panel over time and swap simulation devices between slots as your preferences change:

Square tabs accommodate up to ten Pro Flight Instrument Panels (FIPs). Each FIP allows you to digitally switch between simulating eleven flight instruments (Attitude Indicator, Heading Indicator, Turn/Slip Indicator, Vertical Speed Indicator, Altimeter, Airspeed Indicator, VOR, PFD, ADF, HSI and Engine Gauges). Alternatively, the panel is designed to mount an inexpensive Hannspree HL161ABB 16-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor and display an instrument panel on screen at a substantial cost savings over the FIP devices.

Rectangular tabs accommodate up to four Saitek Pro Flight Multi, Radio, Switch or Backlit Information Panels.

The durable Advanced Panel is MADE IN THE USA from powder coated, aircraft grade sheet metal that is pre-assembled to a textured glare shield. It easily clamps to a desk with Saitek mounting hardware that comes included with flight controls.

The Flight Training Cockpit Advanced Panel and Saitek components work flawlessly with Microsoft Flight Sim X. Minimal setup is required, and the included manuals walk you through installation with ease. Saitek components are also compatible with X-Plane when 3rd party plugins are used.

Great addition
Great addition to any sim setup using Saitek components.

Flight Sim Cockpit Panel
I have installed the first few instruments into the panel and all are going in with little trouble. I am very excited to fire it up and go flying.

Cockpit Advanced Panel
5 is excellent very well manufactured, all the components fit perfectly. I installed 10 Saitek instrument panels, 2 radio panels, 1 switch, 1 BIP plus the yoke, cessna trim, throttle and rudders. I'm having more trouble getting support from Saitek. Only 6 of 10 instrument panels will power up. I've chatted with them twice to no avail. They told me to email their expert (Mike) which I did but he won't (hasn't) called back. The only improvement I would suggest is to add a base (plywood would be fine) with angle braces from your panel to the base. Right now the only support is the clamps on the throttle and yoke... which I don't think is sufficiently stable for $1500 worth of electronics

Cockpit Panel A+
While the panel is not an exact duplicate of any cockpit, it is perfect for gaming or, in my nephews case, pilot practice. It is sturdy and the Saitek components fit perfectly. I would recommend this product.

Valued addition to serious flight-simming
The advance panel is simple, but well made and solid. The quality is better than I expected, with the metal being thicker and the panel more solid than I anticipated. I am glad I bought this, as it takes flight sim to a new level of realism with the saitek panels and instruments in place,

Good, but needs a little more quality control
Good product, and overall I like it....but ran into an issue with several of the plates not being cut all the way through, making them darn near impossible to twist out. It took a few hours with a drimmel to cut them lose.

5/ 5 stars
When I first saw this product, I knew it was exactly what I needed to complete my Cessna Skyhawk C172 simulator setup. Great craftsmanship and easily installed. Two people would be handy though as it can be a bit cumbersome to set up at first, but once it's setup, one person can easily unclamp it and move it. The ONLY downside is that I wish there was room for one additional Saitek panel on the right side,

Great Quality
I received this for Christmas and have loved using it. Its extremely well built. Breaking out the metal plates was sometimes a hassle but you only need to remove them once!
