Veronte Panel is the display that shows the different phases of the flight operation and permits the user to change from one to another. Besides, it can be configured to allow the user to change different parameters of a phase during a real flight (gains, speed, altitude and so on). The panel also shows the checklist that contains a set of actions that must be done before entering into a new phase. In order to configure
