Main Instrument Panel (MIP)

The main instrument panel (MIP) consists of primary flight display, navigation display and engine display. It also has the landing gear and the panel for autopilot. Modern aircrafts use what we call glass cockpit for the controls instead of traditional steam gauges. Glass cockpit is computer driven and more precise. But for backup purposes most aircraft including Boeing and Airbus use some steam gages.
