Concorde Flightdeck Detail

The Concorde Flightdeck looks complicated however it can be easily broken down into smaller areas which will give a better understanding of the layout.

 

Concorde operated with three flightdeck crew menbers they were;

 

Pilot

First officer

Flight engineer

 

Each crew member had a station in the cockpit and played a vital role in the operation of the aircraft.


Here we will explain the operation of each seperate area in the Concorde cockpit and which crew member was responsible for that area.
