How To Use A Fighter Jet Cockpit

Need to know how to use a fighter jet cockpit? If that is the case, then you should have received proper training to fly fighter jets and to even be in the cockpit. Try to remember all that you have been taught, because it will definitely help with knowing what to do in the fighter jet's cockpit. Here are some additional steps for flying a fighter jet, provided to ease your stress!

  1. Get to know the cockpit. This step is extremely important to using a fighter jet cockpit. This is even more important if you keep using different fighter jets each time you go up. This is important because in the middle a stressful situation you don't want to take your time to look down at the cockpit to find the switch or control that you need. Take your time and learn where all the controls, gauges, knobs and so on are so you can easily reach for everything when under pressure. Also, make sure you know where the fighter jet's ejection lever is for emergencies.
  2. Monitor the gauges. Monitoring all the gauges in your fighter jet is an important safety step. Make sure you know where the gauges are, first of all. Now, make sure that you always take a second every once in a while to check all your gauges to make sure everything is going just fine. Pay attention to the fuel gauge, altitude gauge, etc., just to make sure that you're doing okay. If something is wrong, make sure that someone knows that there is a problem going on.
  3. Follow proper procedures. Don't get too distracted with monitoring everything that is going on. Focus on the mission and follow all the proper procedures. Know when to use certain knobs and controls, and always follow your squadron.
  4. In case of emergencies, eject! Only use this as a last resort. The ejection lever should be located on the right side of your seat. Grab the lever and pull it upwards to eject and deploy your parachute. Now, you'll need to look for a safe place to land!
