glass cockpit
 n.— «Like the shuttle, he now has what aviators refer to as a “glass cockpit.” Instead of clock-like gauges and mechanical readouts, his small plane uses multifunctional displays that appear to have been extracted from a computer lab or perhaps a starship bridge.» —“JSC director understands the joys of flight” by Rick Cousins Galveston Daily News (Texas) Nov. 6, 2006.
