Are Personal Modifications Possible in the Cockpit?
The cockpit is a strictly professional area, making it impossible to make personal changes. Although personal belongings can be brought aboard the aircraft, very little is permitted.
Some pilots may bring in caps, pillows, or other tiny personal items. Pilots are given thorough instructions to prevent them from bringing too much luggage on board. A pilot can’t bring his or her type of headset when it’s not the plane’s private jet. So, pilots follow the guidelines—it’s just like going to work—there are regulations.
