Welcome to the Virtual Tour of the Shuttle Glass Cockpit

IMAGE: Glass Cockpit

The new "glass cockpit" that will be initiated when Atlantis launches on STS-101 sets the stage for the next cockpit improvement, planned to fly by 2005: a “smart cockpit” that reduces the pilots’ workload during critical periods.

Now you can see what the inside of the shuttle glass cockpit looks like. You can tour the pilot seat or the mid upper deck.
