Cockpits

Instead of an array of cockpit instruments as in most sims, there were pop-up windows to display essential data.

The concept behind this was to maximise time spent looking out of the aircraft, rather than flying around with your head stuck in the dials! The windows displayed summaries of the data a pilot would abstract from looking at dials and gauges.
