Human-Centered design philosophy has been accepted by Civil Transport Aircraft scopes. Flight deck layout can carry out the human-centered design philosophy. Now we should probe into one method of flight deck layout which can incarnate the human-centered design philosophy. This article provide one method of flight deck layout by the way that according to “design eye point” as benchmark and the design should accommodate and take into account the fundamental characteristics of the pilot population.
