Lear 45 panel pictures

Recommended Posts

Hi,I'm new to cockpit building and I plan to create a Lear 45 cockpit. Have been searching the web for a long time but all I found were blurry, low quality pictuers which cannot help me at all.Does anyone have any good quality Lear 45 shots - detail, full, etc?Many thanks for the help.Alex

1 tip for you here ..if possible try to be creative in your ways and try VERY hard to get contact with a real life Lear 45 pilot. If you're lucky you'll find one willing to help and whom got a digicam. Then that person will take detailed foto's like you can otherwise only dream off and he'll give you all the explaining concerning how things work.I worked for 1 year on my Fokker50 without help from anyone. Now I got contact with a Dutch KLM Cityhopper Fokker50 pilot and just compare my previous throttle system with what I got now ...Try sending mails to airports that Lear 45 frequent. Try sending mails to small airline companies that fly these. Be creative :)I hope this works for you!

Actually drop by the office of a company at your nearest airport that charters Lears. Most people who work around aircraft are flight nuts. There may well be a pilot or mechanic willing to give you the 2-bit tour of a plane on the ground.Richard

;-)Many thanks for advice and pointers. I've already got the pics from e-flight. That's what I by "small and blurry" but thanks anyway. Airliners.net don't have any Lear panels - been there...Alkit: Yep, if you have ANY Lear cocpit pics then my email is Alex_Law@latinmail.com. And no, I'm not from HK. I guess that in that case I would have beed "Alex Lau" ;-D. My "Law" if from "legal".Again, thanks for the help,Al

I didn't ask in my last post, but I assume you already asked Bombardier themselves what they have that could help you ?If not, send an email to them atdave.franson@learjet.comHe's the PR guy for the Lear 45 and he may well have stuff that would help.Richard

Once I asked Boeing for some basic info (panel of course) and they simply ignored my post. I thought that Bombardier would do the same. Maybe I am wrong.Thanks for the email. I will use it and see what comes out of it ;-)Best,Al

Bombardiers website has phone contact info too for the PR people under "Media Center"When I was making my GA radio stack I called the PR folks at Bendix and they were very helpfull, maybe Boeing thinks they're too big :-(Richard

I think Boeing are still a bit sensitive after 9/11. I had some troubles as well, but after being persistant and explaining why I needed the info and getting the right person etc they were OK.Mind you, I am still waiting on a acknowledgement to a query I sent them 3 weeks ago :^)ZK-SHBIf it isn't Boeing, I'm not going.

LOL!In my case I'd change your motto from "If it isn't Boeing, I'm not going" to "If it's not going, it's Boeing" !.Just a joke - I like Boeing over all "other" liners. Couldn't resist though ;-D.Actually I contacted Boeing well before the dreadful 9/11. I guess that they are simply too big to be bothered.I wrote to the email that Richard pointed to. Hopefully I'll get an answer during this lifetime ;-)Thanks,Al

You'll find that Boeing have always been a bit sensitive about their planes over the past few years. I happen to know a few employees who work for a large international firm producing professional multi-million pound flight simulators, and they all tell me just how difficult it is to get information from Boeing even then! So we're not the only ones then :(

hello Alex,Although i think to build a LJ45 is a very challenging project, I would love to see it happen. I hope my pictures would be helpful to you. I was trying to take some pictures in the point of view in the cockpit to the outside, so i didnt use the flashlight.Check this out:http://alkit.fotopic.net/c159979.htmlregards,Alkitwww.alkit747.com

:-8Great pics!! Much better than anything I found on the net!I couldn't d/l them though (of course - they are protected). Can you please email them to me?Regarding the Lear as a "challenging project". I decided on the Lear 45 because first, I like the plane very much, second, It has a reasonable range, and third, it should be much easier and cheaper to implement than a Boeing. No 7-segment anywhere in sight - everything is MFD's. I can solve all the disply things by using 3 LCD displays and Proj. Magenta new RJ gauges, or even the cheaper Reality XP Jet4 set... I think is significantly less challenging than ANY airliner. Oh, did I forget to say - NO UPPER PANEL ?Thank you!AlexPS: No word from Bombardier yet. I'll give them another week and see what happens.

Yes! You are right! And the price is right too! I guess that that will have to be my next purchase (pending dimension information).Thanks for the pointer!Best regards,Al

Hi Alex,I have disabled the protection for you. Please download it within 2 days.The LJ45 cockpit is small but neat! Have you ever think of building Falcon 900 EAsy? The whole cockpit is made by LCD screen. Four 17" LCD can cover 1/2 cockpit layout.Alkit

You may email Dassault directly and mention you want its Falcon 900 Easy. They will send you one foldable poster. Very useful for reference. Also the technology inside can keep you on the loop.Alkit

Dassault will send me a poster??? Now why can't Boeing/Bombardier do that? I am willing to pay so they don't need to be worried that they will be flooded by 1,000s of people asking for freebies...Anyway, their marketing have something to consider - maybe educating today the future potential customers - something like "My First Sony". What about "My First Lear" or "My First Boeing" ?.Thanks for the tip.I'm off now to Dassault website and see how I contact them.BTW - no word from Bombardier yet Best regards,Al

Bomdardier, you may try.If for cessna, no way. I was request to visit the cockpit when public day of airshow. The sales said there are customer inside the plane (when I see no one inside and dark as they open the door). What a lie. The sales people were so busy with the asian girls under the umberlla. I would prefer they simply say "sorry, not allow for visit" than tell me a stupid lie.
