Location and Actuation of Flight Deck Controls for Transport Aircraft ARP268

The purpose of this document is to set forth the recommendations of SAE Committee S-7 relative to the location and actuation of flight deck controls. These recommendations are intended to minimize confusion and distraction and thereby reduce transition training time, crew errors, fatigue, and other factors detrimental to flight safety and efficiency. In arriving at these recommendations, the committee carefully reviewed the work of the flight deck layout panel of the Aircraft Committee of the Munitions Board, the recommendations and requirements of the Civil Aeronautics Board, the Federal Aviation Agency, the requirements of the airline operators, the aircraft manufacturers, etc. In cases where conflicting opinions existed, suitable compromises were made. The recommendations of this document apply to commercial type, multi-engine transport aircraft which utilize reciprocating or turbine type powerplants and which are operated in subsonic, transonic, or supersonic speed regimes. These recommendations are not intended to apply to V/STOL configurations.
