The same team that developed the original Panel Builder is making available the all new eHangar.org Panel Designer. Builders can sign up to create a free account and start designing an instrument panel in a browser window immediately.
eHangar.org resurrected one of the most loved tools for builders of Experimental Aircraft with new features and plans for additional tools.
The design of your instrument panel is one of the most important decisions you will make in building your custom homebuilt aircraft, and the eHangar.org Panel Designer can help form concept to first flight. It has the tools necessary to design and build a panel to your exact style and specifications. The new Panel Designer application will guide you through the design process and, if you like, link you with partner avionics shops to build your custom turn-key panel for you.
