Lear 45 Cockpit Dimensions

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone here who ownes or has access to cockpit drawings/photos/dimensions of the Lear 45? I am particularly interested in the dimensions of the cockpit interior and placement of the instruments, also on left and right side of the pilot and co-pilot. I am researching the possibility to build a life-like Lear 45 replica cockpit for use with FS2004. Hope anyone can help...Thanks in advance, Jack

Hi,I have already collected a lot of photographs, but the problem is that most of the lettering from knobs and switches is not readable even when zoomed and enhanced. I was able to retrieve the dimensions of the Honeywell Primus displays used in the Lear, which are 7 by 8 inches. However, I do not know if this is with or without the surrounding faceplates.....So far this is all I was able to retrieve, and by calculating the Primus Dimensions I came up with a Panel width of 1m55, but this might be very wrong. I now have printed out a photo in what I believe is "true size" and that gives me a lot to work with (if correct).What I really would like is for someone to confirm the panel dimensions, measured at the bottom of the panel From that I will probably be able to calculate the rest.Also I need to find the location of the APU starter switch. I cannot find anything even remotely looking like it on any of my photo's.I am afraid the chances of finding a Lear 45 in The Netherlands, which is where I live, are very slim. There are no company's here operating the Lear 45. And since I have no eyes and ears in the aviation world, the chances of finding a foreign one at one of the Dutch airports are practically zilch, let alone trying to get the pilots to let me take a few pictures of the cockpit, and fiddling around with my tape measure...... Mailing Bombardier gave no results either: they redirected me to their website, which has NO dimensions for the cockpit, only for the passengers compartment.I am starting to get a little desperate about ever finding the data I need.......If there is anyone around with access to this data, PLEASE help me out! It will be greatly appreciated !!JackP.s.: mgdaviso, succes with building your Global Express flightdeck....
