''Zakharov'' is working on a new glass cockpit and is improving the ZKV1000 instrument, turning it into a replica of the Garmin Primus 1000.  The interface is based on a Garmin Primus 1000 user manual found in a DA40 aircraft.  It is designed for simple integration in an aircraft panel, and in the future it will be possible to configure the graphic interface and automatic behavior for specific aircraft (i.e. speed warnings).

A new cockpit is being developed for the historic [[Lockheed L-1011-500|L-1011-500]] airliner by [[User:Armchair_Ace|Armchair Ace]] and ''statto'', hopefully making it an enjoyable aircraft to fly!
