What is the Cockpit?

The cockpit is the section where the pilot and the co-pilot manage the aircraft. The two main functions of the cockpit are; to provide the pilot with a good angle and to make all control mechanisms accessible to them. Planes are also designed based on the same principle of any vehicle. 

What Does Plane Cockpit Mean?

The cockpit of the plane is where the plane is controlled. This section is like an office for pilot and co-pilot. All data is transmitted to the pilot and co-pilot with the help of panels within this section to ensure that the aircraft can fly stably. This is also a special section equipped with security systems, by which the aircraft is controlled. Thus, the cockpit provides every data about the plane and is designed to give the pilots a good angle during flight. 

What is the Function of the Cockpit?

The cockpit is the section where all data about aircraft and flight is transmitted to pilots via screens. The aircraft can be manually managed thanks to the control mechanisms within this section. There are also communication panels. All information about the plane is sent to the control towers through this system. 

Who is the Cockpit Team? 

Pilot and co-pilot. This is set out by the rules for a standard passenger aircraft. In military aircraft, there can only be one pilot, depending on the type of aircraft. 

Does the Cockpit Glass Crack?

The glass is approximately 6 centimeters thick and is reinforced with various chemicals. These glasses consist of several layers and can withstand temperatures ranging from -60 degrees to 40 degrees Celsius. It can crack in very extreme situations, but cracks only occur in the first layer. It is not possible for the glass to crack completely under normal conditions.

How to Open the Cockpit Doors?

The doors have a security system managed from the pilot panel and are opened only with a password. For example, the cockpit doors of Airbus planes have three different modes: open, locked and normal. When the door is open, the door can be opened from the inside. When it is locked, the door cannot be opened for 5 minutes even with a security password, it can be even longer than 5 mins if the pilot wishes to do so. In normal mode, doors can be opened in 30 seconds using a password. If the pilot gives feedback in 30 seconds, the doors won't open.
