The interactive cockpit allows the player to control various aircraft devices and engine settings, such as those mentioned above under advanced engine controls. It also gives you the experience of controlling an actual World War Two aircraft in an authentic manner. The interactive cockpit will only work if the Engine Management option is set to Manual in the flight preferences.

  • To activate the interactive cockpit press the right mouse button. This will bring up a white mouse pointer.
  • To activate switches, place the pointer over the switch, and press the left mouse button.
  • To push a button, such as the starter motor button, place the pointer on the button and hold down the left mouse button.
  • Levers, such as the throttle lever or propeller pitch control, can be moved by clicking the mouse on the handle of the lever and moving the mouse up or down while holding down the mouse button.
  • Wheels, such as the elevator and rudder trim wheels can be used in a similar way. Hold down the mouse button and move the mouse left and right or up and down as appropriate.

The interactive features in the cockpit cannot be used while the game is paused.

In Rowan's Battle of Britain there are five aircraft that you can fly, and each one has its own interactive cockpit.

Appendix One at the back of this manual shows the cockpit layout for each of these five aircraft (Spitfire, Hurricane, Stuka, Messerschmitts 110 and 109).
