*** PREVIOUS RESULTS ***
Last week, AVweb pit glass-panel displays against the
analog variety, hoping to find out where our readers
stand on the issue.
What we learned is that there aren't many die-hard
fans of the analog panel out there. 11% of you
preferred the glass panel hands-down, while a
substantial 37% of respondents cited the glass panel's
superior reliability and situational awareness. 1%
of participants (only seven of you) thought that glass
panels are easier to learn and therefore superior to
analog because they reduce the risk of pilot failures.
A large segment of respondents (39% of you) said
you'd love to have a sampling of both analog and
glass-panel cockpit features if it wasn't such an
extravagant way to spend your cockpit budget.
Only 61 of you (12% of respondents) favored the
analog panel, with 24 readers citing the difficulty of
the glass panel to learn as a possible pratfall.
