Besides the planes, I also like to photograph the interiors of the aicrafts. Through the years I managed to compile a neat collection of photos like this...
Cessna 210 "Centurion"
Zlin Z37 "Cmelak"
Zlin Z226 "Trener 6"
Zlin Z726 "Trener Univerzal"
Valentin "Taifun" 17E
You can see that the dashboard is an oldschool one, but HA-DAC was fitted with almost everything there is: ADF, VOR/ILS, and GPS (the latter was removed at the time I took this photo).
You can tell that this plane wasn't designed yesterday!
You might say that the cockpit lacks on
ergonomy. But you have ventillator instead of air conditioning :-)
The Antonov AN-26 is a two-engine cargo plane quite common in Eastern Europe. The one I photographed from the inside belonged to the air force but now it's in the AF museum at Szolnok.
HA-SLP: C-150's don't need no introduction, aren't they?
Not a new plane, but fun to fly with!

HA-SJK: the first two-seat Cessna I ever flew with...
HA-SLZ. This plane was made in 1966 and the dashboard looks even older, almost like the old taildrag-Cessnas!
The remarkably empty cockpit of HA-MJC.
I love the design of the dashboard, it's like an elegant car from the seventies
: this one's a workplane so functionality comes before comfort and looks.
with sporty looks.
The cabin of HA-FBG.
You can tell this plane is nicely equipped!
The "hand brake lever" (flap actuator)
and trimming dials are located between the front seats.
The cockpit of the Z-142 is very much like that of a Z-42, which is no coincidence since 80% of the aircrafts' components are the same.
HA-TRM: one of - if not THE - most beautyful plane I ever had the chance to fly with. Although more than 40 years old, and not too sophisticatedly equipped, it still kicks ass!
You don't need anything more for a sport plane...
Notice the metrical gauges (metres instead
of feets, etc).
this Z-526F is in very good condition, its owner loves it and that can
The plane of european aerobatic champion Mr. Zoltán Veres photographed at Budaörs. It's got a very simple dashboard, there's not even an artifical horizon there!
The front cabin is even simpler, as it
is intended mostly for a passenger...
The cockpit of HA-SES.
I think the switches, levers and gauges
are quite self-explainatory - if you speak hungarian and russian :-)
The cockpit of HA-JDM.
This plane is very nicely equipped with
A popular half-glider-half-motor plane.
The cockpit of HA-SLS.
Quite robust, I think. (Photos by Laczkó István).
