Includes display standards. Complete text of FAA Advisory Circulars with specific guidance on designing and installing avionics displays. Also contains a document on  display engineering principles.

Panel legends and labels. If you plan to design or modify a system, this section provides hundreds of recommended panel abbreviations to use for display and control functions.

Many practical display examples. More than 200 color illustrations of actual panels, flight decks and avionics systems  now flying on commercial transport, GA and military aircraft.
