The Flight deck Fokker 50 features a 'dark cockpit' philosophy - It is easy to fly and all contribute to reduced pilot workload. PAOB Fokker 50 panel's functions have many been simulated.

Air Conditioning, Anti-Ice, Auto-Flight, APU, Communications, Check Lists, Electrical, Fire Protection, Flight Instruments, Fuel, Hydraulics, Landing Gear, Navigation, Power Plant, Pressurization, Night lighting, Sound effect.

The CAP - "Central Annunciator Panel" is a integrated alerting system which we have been simulated the failures and warnings as follows:

LEVEL 3 ALERTS, LEVEL 2 ALERTS, LEVEL 1 ALERTS, Warning inhibit modes, Warning system tests, Other failure lights.

Air Conditioning
• Cockpit and cabin temperature control

• Engine, airframe, probes and window anti-ice systems

• Flight Mode Panel
• Automatic vertical and lateral guidance
• FS GPS integrated with FMP

• Auxiliary Power Unit for electrical and pneumatic needs on the ground

• Two VHF COMM radios
• Two Mode C Transponder

Check Lists
• Integrated file system with voice

• Simulated AC and DC systems
• Digital displays to monitor state of AC and DC system
• Multiple power sources: engine, APU or ground power

Fire Protection
• Full fire detection system with engine shut-off valves
• Overhead panel fire handles

- Pitot heads off
- Hydraulic system fail
- Pax door open
- Aft door open
- Forward cargo door open

- Fuel level imbalance
- Tank pressure low
- Beacon lights not on
- Cabin emergency lights not on

Warning inhibit modes:
- Engine out inhibit
- Takeoff inhibit

Warning system tests:
