Chelton Flight Systems: Glass Cockpit
Computer Pilot (2005)

Abstract
As any aviation enthusiast can attest, flying is very dynamic in nature. Something that has been changing quite a bit lately is the type of equipment that is infiltrating general aviation cockpits. Round dials and needles have been rapidly replaced with television-type screens and fancy software to run on them. In fact, most small aircraft coming off the assembly lines these days have such "glass cockpits." Soon, analogue gauges may no longer be available. While this changeover has been taking place, only a limited number of "glass" displays have been presented to flight simulator users. Until now, no true all-glass cockpit has been available for flight simulator general aviation aircraft.
