A Description of the Crew Compartment Layout and Instruments, and Details of the Hydraulic, Power Plant, Fuel, Fire Protection, Flight Control, Wing Flap, Air Conditioning and Pressurization, Ice and Rain Protection, Electrical and Radio Systems. WITH the crew compartment situated above the main freight compartment, the layout presented few problems from a space point of view. Height was restricted due to the need to keep the frontal area of the fuselage within reason but there was ample width to allow the pilots plenty of elbow room. Most of the work in settling the layout was conducted on the full‐size mock‐up and in view of the fact that this was the first civil aircraft to be designed by the company for some years, a review of modern airliner cockpits was undertaken, and consultations took place between the firm, the British Airline Pilots' Association, and the Air Registration Board before too many of the features were settled.
