UFCD - Up Front Control Display

Working time approx. 25 hrs.

In the F-18E, the UFCD is the primary interface for viarious navigation and communication settings like the selection of radio frequencies, navaids and autopilot modes.

I built the UFCD bezel with all its buttons, potentiometers and encoders around a Faytech 7" touchscreen monitor.
