The Flight Training Cockpit
Advanced Panel offers a cockpit-realistic way to mount Saitek Pro Flight Simulation Instruments and Controls. The Advanced Panel twist-and-remove pre-cut tabs allow you to add Saitek hardware to your Advanced Panel over time and trade simulation devices between slots.
Small tabs accommodate up to 10 Pro Flight Instruments. Each Saitek Flight Instrument Panel allows you to digitally switch between simulating eleven flight instruments. Alternatively, mount a Hannspree HL161ABB 16” Screen LED-Lit Monitor in one of several possible Panel face mounting configurations.
Large tabs accommodate up to four Saitek Pro Flight Multi, Radio, Switch or Backlit Information Panels. The durable Advanced Panel is made in the USA from powder coated, aircraft grade sheet metal that is pre-assembled to a textured glare shield. It easily clamps to a desk with Saitek mounting hardware that comes included with flight controls.

This is a really well built and finished cockpit dash. Going to finish my simulator up with a minimum amount of work. Time is money and this is a good value.
All I can say , is I wish I had gotten this 4 years ago ! Make for great flying now ! I love it !!
Well made with a reasonable price compared to other panels Ive seen. Although designed for the honeycomb yoke I modified mine to fit a redbird yoke. I also obtained a vernier style TPM with 9 additional switches. This of course meant additional mods to the panel. Im glad my dremel could handle the cutting. I am awaiting my avionics and will send a pic shortly after. My only complaint is the top of the panel should have been wide enough to use as a dashboard.

We no longer carry that exact item. The one we have that is closest to the one shown in the photo is the Redbird Throttle Quadrant, Part# 13-19642.
The only instructions available from the manufacturer are the ones posted in the Documents tab on the web page.
The Advanced panel is 14 gauge (0.0747) HRPO with an ASTM D523 gloss black powder coating, so it measures slightly thicker due to the coating.
