CT-114 Tutor Cockpit Photos:

 

SNOWBIRDS NUMBER 1 COCKPIT DETAIL PHOTOS

Canada’s Snowbirds flight demonstration team is known around the world as one of the finest aerobatic teams anywhere.  They have flown the CT-114 Tutor since 1972 when they were formed at CFB Moose Jaw, replacing the Golden Centennaires team which had been formed as part of the celebration of Canada’s Centennial Year in 1967.  Later the team gained squadron status as the 431 Air Demonstration Squadron in 1978.  The Snowbirds continued to fly the Tutor long after it had been replaced by newer aircraft in the Canadian Forces training squadrons.

During an air show at Falcon Field in Peachtree City, Georgia, the team leader was gracious enough to provide Bert Kinzey with access to the cockpit of his aircraft.  The photographs in the photo set show the details in what is arguably the most famous of all CT-114 Tutors.

An overall view of the instrument panel shows the location of the various instruments, warning lights, and other switches and controls.  The leader’s helmet, oxygen mask, and hose hang from the center of the canopy frame.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The throttle for the pilot in the left seat is located on a rather narrow console.  The oxygen supply connection and its controls are located aft of the throttle.  The device for opening and closing the canopy is on the side of the cockpit.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

A narrow console was also located on the right side of the cockpit.  As is the case with the pilot on the left side, the instructor in the right seat controls his oxygen supply with the switches on this console.  The socket for the oxygen hose is visible near the front of the console.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The ejection seats are matched to the aircraft and are specific to the left or right side of the aircraft as indicated by the yellow stenciling.  The fact that the headrests are painted different colors further differentiates the two seats.  The leader has a stuffed animal mascot to watch over the aircraft when he is not present.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)
