Cockpit is the only channel that pilots communicate with aircraft, which provides pilots the current flight status and flight control information, it is an indispensable part of aircraft and flight simulator. Virtual cockpit is simulating on computer of aircraft cockpit by using the technology of computer graphics. Virtual cockpit can be used as the early stage of the flight simulator design, before all the hardware is designed, to verify the theory. Flight simulator uses virtual cockpit, not only can greatly reduce the system development costs and speed, but also has a very broad application prospects for making low-cost flight training device.This thesis analyses, designs and completes a virtual cockpit human-machine interface (HMI) system. It determines the software development tools and running environment, completes the simulation with understanding of functional and performance requirements of virtual cockpit application. This dissertation makes a thorough study of the electronic flight instrument system(EFIS) which contains primary flight display(PFD) and multi-functional flight display(MFD) and engine indication and crew alerting system(EICAS)’s function unit, specific implementation and solutions of key issues. In the meantime, control panels’which can control the instrument system are designed and processed.The system uses the object-oriented programming method, C++programming language and network communication technology bases on GL Studio development tool, completes the virtual cockpit HMI simulation.Finally through the system alignment test, function and performance test. System debugging shows that the scheme is feasible. Developed with a high fidelity simulation program, good extensibility and strong portability, can meet the demand of real-time flight simulator.
