Electronic Aircraft display (EFIS)

I made a Primary Flight Display (PFD) for an A320. Noesis GUI is really great to render the vector graphics used in many modern aircraft displays. And fast too!

That looks so neat, Elecman. Are the colors your choice or do they match the real thing? I like it either away!

They match the real thing pretty closely. It is hard to measure without some sort of screen calibration device (color munki) and taking a photo and using an eye dropper doesn't really work. Instead, I calibrated the colors by eye. Close enough.

Awesome job! Let us know if you can create a video showing those vectors in movement. We can promote it in our twitter.
