Airline Cockpit Controls

Hey all,
Over the last few months, I have been working on labelling each control, button, switch etc in the Boeing 737-800 cockpit with numbers and a word document with what each number is.


I’ve created another website (my second aviation website) about aircraft specifics and I’m planning on doing this for each commercial aircraft (Airbus and Boeing) and maybe the Cessna 172.
As this is such a big task, I would like you guys to vote on which aircraft I work on next.

  • A220
  • A318
  • A319
  • A320
  • A321
  • A330
  • A340
  • A350
  • A380
  • Boeing 707
  • Boeing 717
  • Boeing 727
  • Boeing 737
  • Boeing 737 (not the -800)
  • Boeing 747
  • Boeing 757
  • Boeing 767
  • Boeing 777
  • Boeing 787
  • Cessna 172

If you would like a specific type (say the Boeing 777X) or aircraft (say A300) then please comment below.
The Boeing 737-800 cockpit controls will be available to view from my website which will either be linked below or on my profile when I publish it.
Thanks a lot, everyone!


Looks a big task, well done!

I have voted, but as a guide, suggest that your next one is another aircraft already in infinte Flight (so we can compare the results!) and go for an Airbus, maybe one which compliments the B737 ?

Also to help simplyfy your poles, the A318/A319/A320/A321 all share the same cockpit so that IRL pilots can fly all types on the same type rating.

good luck!

Hey @David_Lockwood,
Are you telling me that the A320 family all have the exact same controls?

“Pilots can fly the A318, A319, A320 and A321 with a Single Type Rating thanks to their identical cockpits”.

@anon70772274 also their is common type rating across the B737 range. However there are three main groups of B737 and I think there are different type ratings for each group, however a real life B737 pilot would be best to confirm that!

Brief overview from Wikipedia:
The 737 models can be divided into four generations, including thirteen major variants. The “Original” models consist of the 737-100, 737-200/-200 Advanced. The “Classic” models consist of the 737-300, 737-400, and 737-500. The “Next Generation” variants consist of the 737-600, 737-700/-700ER, 737-800, and 737-900/-900ER. Of these variants, many feature additional versions such as the T-43, which was a modified Boeing 737-200 used by the United States Air Force (USAF). The fourth generation derivative - the 737 MAX - consists of the 737-MAX-7, 737-MAX-8, and 737-MAX-9 which will replace the -700, -800 and -900/900ER versions of the NG family, respectively. A fourth MAX variant, the 737-MAX-10 is currently under development and is the largest 737 to date.


Thanks David, I am aware of the Original, Classic, NG and the MAX version. I just wanted a general idea of what everyone wanted.
