Once in, there’s plenty of room to stretch your legs and sit upright… though at the limit of the latter in my case. Simple and uncluttered, the cockpit of YU-A102 sported only a very basic avionics fit, tailored to the needs of the German market. Interesting features include the side panels canted towards the pilot, as well as the innovative system switches, which light up when activated (as could have been seen in the above video). The two guarded switches on the left panel are the magnets, while the key slot beside them is not the starter – but the battery master switch. The ominous red handle that sticks into the eye next to my knee activates the ballistic parachute system – and is also guarded for your wallet’s safety.
