757/767 panel question.

Hope this helps. Its what I used.My measurements, taken today, put them at 19" (near the ADI/HSI section of the main instrument panel. The section near the EICAS screens are a little higher. I was a little surprised that the instrument panel was not at right angles to the MCP housing.The surface of the MCP was a little bumpy, so I got a few different angle readings on my inclinometer (but it's around 20 to 22 degrees).The footrest was about 2" above the somewhat irregular surface of the cockpit floor(around the footwell area)... and from this 2" baseline, I was able to measure directly up to the glareshield. The height of the 767 MCP seems to be about 2" higher than the 747-400 MCP... and the angles appear to be somewhat different also.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/74180.gif

Would you able to get the same information from 747? no matter classic or -400 (I think they are the same). I need this information badly for setting up my cockpit. Many many thanks.Alkit

That thread has numbers for some angles on the 744 MIP.Regards,Manuel
