The paper outlines a general philosophy for locating and equipping the major crew member stations in supersonic transport aircraft, and also highlights some important comfort items that reflect poor design in current jet aircraft. A few suggestions are made on crew seating, control wheel design, instrumentation, visibility, and flight engineer's station requirements, showing examples of each.
