Airbus' newest airplane to enter service is a technological marvel to behold. It can cruise on autopilot mode with state-of-the-art controls.
If you have ever wondered what all those switches, dials, and levers do in the cockpit of an airplane, you are not alone. CNN Travel asked the pilot of the aircraft, the Airbus A220-300. The pilot, Gerhard Ramcke, of Latvian airline airBaltic, gave the channel network a tour of the flight deck of a brand-new Airbus A220-300 as the aircraft launched earlier this year, according to a CNN feature.
The controls of the super-modern aircraft is a far cry from the clunky mechanisms found in older planes – the A220-300 is fully digital.
