Opinions - crew visible in aircraft?

So I have a few aircraft in my inventory that I absolutely love. The JAR A320neo, the Mu-2, and the FlyJSim Q400, 737, and 727, the An-24, Mi-2… One quirk that they all have…that grates on me…is that they don’t have cockpit crew visible from the external viewpoints. I know…for realism sake…you should be flying from the virtual cockpit only…but I use external views extensively for AARs and magazine articles.

What do you think?

  • Yes - visible crew should be included in 3D models.
  • No - the cockpit should be empty.
  • Meh - I have no opinion.

I know I biased the poll with my opinion…but just curious…


Visiable from external yes but I hate it when they are visiable for inside the pit.


Yeah…same opinion…I don’t need to see a Minecraft type pilot sitting next to me.



I’d like to add that they should have animation.

I’d choose “Users should have the option to have the crew visible in the cockpit.”

Same for AI aircraft, ground equipment, etc.
