The exhibition features this cockpit diplay with a computer-simulated takeoff and landing of an Airbus A320 from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
The A320 was the first airliner equipped with a glass cockpit and digital fly-by-wire flight controls, which provide more information to the pilot while enhancing safety and efficiency. Pioneered by NASA and the aerospace industry, the glass cockpit was introduced in 1982 and is now the industry standard.
