A Description of A380 Cockpits 
The A380 Airbus is the world's largest airplane at 239.5 feet (73 meters) in length. It has 
a 261.8-foot (79.8 meter) wingspan and accommodates two decks with a passenger capacity 
of 555. Emirates was the first airline to buy an A380 in 2000. The plane benefits from 
advanced technology and design, from fuel efficiency and passenger comfort to the cockpit 
layout. 
 Cockpit Design 
The A380 cockpit has an area of 47.4 square feet (4.4 square meters). This makes it much 
roomier than most wide-bodied jets. There are eight display monitors for the two-person 
piloting team and all systems are connected by a network. Each display is large enough to 
provide clearer presentation for the pilot. A track ball, similar to a computer mouse and a 
keyboard are used to navigate through information on the interactive, reconfigurable screens. 
 Navigation and Weather Controls 
The A380 has a display that shows the altitude vertically and distance horizontally. Terrain 
is projected in brown while the flight path is in green and the aircraft is shown in yellow. 
Weather can be seen horizontally and vertically at any altitude, allowing for greater 
situational awareness. The pilots also can make specific modifications to the flight plan, 
through menus with choices, on the navigation screen more quickly and efficiently. 
 Information and Flight Management Controls 
Pilots and crew have access to technical logbooks, maps, equipment and operation manuals 
and other information in electronic form. Many controls are streamlined for more efficiency. 
The Flight Management System is displayed on two screens instead of the usual three. 
Folders are used to store and access related functions. Air traffic control messaging is also 
pared down from two screens to one. Pilots can view surveillance video on cockpit displays.

Embraer Legacy Shuttle 
Description 
The EMB-135LR, in contrast to its predecessor, is designed to work best on shorter 
trips. It can carry more passengers than its predecessor, and is designed to be used as 
a corporate shuttle for anywhere between 16 and 37 passengers, not as a luxurious office at 
39,000 feet. 
With that in mind, the Legacy Shuttle meets its design objectives very well. It is 
extremely practical, making it an ideal private jet for day-to-day business use. In addition, it 
is exceptionally reliable, retaining plenty of backup systems for each key function, as should 
be expected from a private jet originally designed for day-in, day-out commercial use. 
The cabin of the Legacy Shuttle is the second-largest of any heavy jet (following only the 
late-generation Gulfstreams), with a cabin volume of 1,413 cubic feet. The cabin measures 6 
feet high, 6.9 feet wide, and 42.4 feet long. The internal and external baggage compartments, 
totaling 367 cubic feet, can hold 2,756 pounds of baggage and are both accessible in-flight. 
The external baggage compartment is pressurized, air-conditioned, and has class C fire 
protection. 
Although the interior configurations vary greatly according to how many passengers 
the jet holds (16-37 passengers), typical amenities include a galley with an oven, coffee 
maker and cold food storage. Airshow 400, single-channel satcom and multiple AC power 
outlets are included in the standard interior configuration. The in-flight entertainment system 
consists of a 20-inch flat-panel screen mounted at the front of the cabin that includes DVD, 
VCR, and CD players with headphone jacks at each seat. Alternately, individual passenger 
screens may be installed, along with multi-channel satcom, various pieces of office 
equipment, a microwave, and so on. Cabins are insulated with a 54 dBa acoustical insulation 
package from Flight Environments and all have an emergency oxygen system and an 
emergency exit. Seat design varies according to which interior layout is chosen; for the 16-
passenger option, the seats are quite comfortable and spread out, as in a first-class 
commercial cabin. The 19-passenger configuration uses smaller seats that are more tightly-
spaced, and the high-density (37 passenger) option is undeniably reminiscent of coach. 
The Legacy Shuttle is powered by two Rolls-Royce AE3007 A1/3 turbofan engines. 
Each engine is flat-rated to 7,057 pounds of thrust. Inspection is on-condition. FADEC 
makes engine startup almost entirely automatic and regulates their performance in-flight for 
optimal fuel burn and speed. On average, the engines burn 313 gallons of fuel per hour. 
The cockpit of the Legacy Shuttle is equipped with the Honeywell Primus 1000 
avionics suite, which includes dual FMS with GPS, CVR, TAWS, TCAS, a Primus 800 
Doppler Turbulence detection weather radar, single-channel CAT II autopilot, a Smiths 
Industries Integrated Standby Instrument System, and many more pieces of communication 
and situation-awareness equipment. Information is displayed on five flat-panel Cathode Ray 
Tubes. Additional equipment can be added as desired.

Fokker 100 
The Fokker 100 offers you the possibility of operating a highly reliable, 
mature, but young aircraft on short to medium haul routes. Continuous product 
improvements are made by Fokker Services based on operator experience and any 
new regulations. The Fokker 100 fleet is relatively young. With a design life of 
90,000 flying hours or landings the average age is only around 35,000 flying hours 
or 30,000 landings. 
 
The aircraft offers flexibility from an all-economy 5-abreast 109 seater at 32 
in pitch to a very spacious 4-abreast all-business class seating arrangements. Many 
alternative and mixed-class seating arrangements are possible. Any arrangement 
offers a revenue potential unequalled by smaller regional jets. The passenger cabin 
is spacious and offers over 2m standing height in the aisle. The cabin is also very 
quiet due to the aft fuselage engine position, Tay low noise characteristics and 
clever noise attenuating features. Innovative
