Yoke and glare shield heights thoughts

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I am designing a somewhat simple home cock pit.  Nothing too crazy, but I would like to build a nice looking panel.  One question I have is what heights are typical for the yoke and glare shield from the floor?  I see photos here of various heights for the yoke.  So looks like personal preference plays a big role.  However I would like to be as realistic as possible.  What are your thoughts?  Any ideas / suggestions?  I mostly fly the B200 however I want to be generic with the build.

 

FYI, my plan is to build a "desk" to hold three TVs, one forward, one left, and one right.  I want to then build a panel with a smaller TV to display the instrument panel and enclose my Go-Flight's.  

 

The photos and posts in this forum have been very helpful in my idea phase :)

Based off of the Boeing 757, the top of the yoke hub from floor is 30 1/2 inches. The pivot point of the yoke is 28 3/8 inches.

 

Very top of mode control panel to floor is 42 inches.
