Cockpit instruments

These are fairly basic as aircraft go, but provide all the information a pilot needs, airspeed, direction, attitude to the horizon, rate of climb and descent and perhaps most important fuel levels, engine rpm, oil pressure and soon. Handling this aircraft was interesting, she is very responsive to the controls and needs a firm yet gentle hand. Agile and very manoeuvrable, it is glider like in design, apart from the whacking great engine in the nose, and has good all round view from the bubble cockpit hood. Retractable undercarriage means she is also quite quick and efficient in the air. I'd post a coupe more photos, but for some reason they don't want to upload.
