Slicker Than Snot On A Doorknob

The cockpit is becoming so different than what I learned in. I can remember peeking into the cockpit of a United 707 "awhile" back (yeah...I'm showing my age) and being awed with all the "steam gauges". Modern G.A. aircraft have much more capability now, than that 707 back in the days.

VistaNav has come out with a 3D/2D tablet PC for your plane. Click on the links below to view the video (requires Windows MediaPlayer 10®).
