The Skyhawk panel started out looking much like the Cessna 170’s. By the late 1960s, the basic panel design had morphed to what we’re used to seeing today, but the yoke position remained near the center of the panel. It was later moved down for better ergonomics and instrument visibility, with the six-pack instruments centered above the yoke tube. Even so, this 1969 IFR panel is remarkably capable, with ILS, ADF, and an autopilot, the roll-only Cessna brand Navomatic 300. Note the electric flaps. Early models had manual flaps, actuated by a big Johnson bar located between the seats.
