        Airplanes have evolved from relatively simple to incredibly complex machines. But remember: Whether you're flying a Cessna Skyhawk SP Model 172 or a Boeing 777–300, you're still flying an airplane, and airplanes are more alike than not. In the cockpit, for instance, most modern airplanes share six basic cockpit instruments: airspeed indicator, altimeter, attitude indicator, heading indicator (directional gyro), turn coordinator, and vertical speed indicator. Learning to use these six instruments and a few common controls, such as trim and flaps, will put you far down the runway toward flying any aircraft you wish.
