Panel Planner is your best solution for designing and fabricating whole instrument panels for large twin to experimental aircraft. It is made for the aircraft owner, homebuilder, repair/refit station, flight department, designer, or manufacturer. Panel Planner is a stand-alone program and no CAD experience is required!
Panel Planner gives you the power to design and build instrument panels in record time. Simply drag full-color, photo-realistic instruments, avionics, and cockpit controls into place on an aircraft panel template. Today match your design to on-line data from Aircraft Spruce.
Panel Planner tracks total cost, total weight, and peak current, generates an equipment list, and even prints actual-size hole-cutting templates and color mock-ups with your desktop printer. Cut panel design and construction by 50% or more!
Panel Planner equipment and panels can be updated locally or over the internet keeping you up-to-date, with the most recent instruments in the market, ready for you to use. The software is multi-platform, based in a technology called Java, and can run either on Macintosh or Windows. Version 4.0 is now available in PC or Mac.
Note: Limited to 5 panel designs per software.
Gene Velazuez at Panel Planner provides amazing and same day after sales service and help with the software. Makes ordering a custom machined panel simple. Thank you
Has a few glitches. The Dynon knob cut out is correct for the Autopilot but not for the Dynon radio and Baro knob panels. Sometimes undo doesnt work properly, so saving file revisions helps in case things dont go well. Have to install and run as Administrator on Windows.
