I can’t imagine having to do emergency relief flights like I did for Hurricane Ida without the Cockpit Organizer and Baggage Organizer I developed. Read the flight debrief here.

You can create a safe and efficient cockpit with the “Cockpit Organizer,” formally known as the “Cockpit Companion.” It is a convenient organizer for the loose items that pilots can’t easily find or always seem to drop in the cockpit.

It easily slides in between the front seats and features incredible utility while in flight. Attractive and durable, like the original Cessna Cockpit Companion the modern Cockpit Organizer is built from top-grade acrylic. (Note: Organizer does not include example items in product pictures.)

If you have 3 inches between your seats you might want to look at this other model (CO-172). See the detailed fit guide at the bottom.

The CO-182 model is reported to fit in the 182A-182S models. I have a 182P and it fits perfectly. It is the years after production began again in 1996 with the 182T that the distance between the seats was smaller for a few years.

As a busy public safety fire department pilot, I never had enough storage or organization in my busy 182 cockpits. So I went looking for a solution. At the bottom of this description, you can see the Cockpit Organizer in my busy fire department Cessna 182, Fire Demon 1.

What I found was a previously designed organizer from the paper chart days that seemed dated but could work for me. But the story of the original Cessna Cockpit Companion had a tragic ending. Click here to read what happened. It was no longer available.

So with the blessing of Jack Wright, the original designer of the organizer, I had a new unit redesigned, engineered, and updated to handle modern cockpit electronics needs.

Gone were compartments for paper maps and approach plates and they were replaced with a focus more on cables, tablets, and cellphones. Oh yes, and a place to put my water bottle.


  • Since it is not mounted permanently it can be easily moved between aircraft.
  • Clear sides and partitions help you to not lose items in the Organizer.
  • Built for the modern electronic pilot supplies.
  • The bottom of the organizer is open to fit over a fire extinguisher mounted to the floor.
  • Made of clear acrylic. You can find the list of material benefits at the bottom of this page.


The Cockpit Organizer provides easy access to:

  • Pens
  • iPad or Tablet
  • USB Cable Storage
  • Water Bottle or Drinks
  • Portable Battery
  • Phone Holder
  • Headset
  • Paper Charts or Plates
  • Fire Extinguisher
  • Portable Radio
  • Glasses
  • Fuel Strainer
  • Books
  • Wallet
  • Flashlight
  • and More!

This shows a modified Cessna Cockpit Organizer and how you can just lift it up to toss it out of the way in an emergency.

This shows the optional extra drink holder I attached to the back of the Cockpit Organizer to hold another drink bottle.

You can see the fire extinguisher fits underneath the Cockpit Organizer and the optional fold-up bottle holder is on the back.

Material Specifications

The Cockpit Organizer is constructed out of clear acrylic. This gives you the following advantages:

  • High level of impact resistance (17 times the impact resistance of glass).
  • Very durable.
  • Easy to maintain.
  • Acrylic does not yellow over time.
  • It is transparent, which allows a pilot to find items in the Cockpit Organizer quickly.
  • The Cockpit Organizer could be polished at any time to maximize clarity.
  • The ability to polish allows all sharp edges to be softened in manufacturing to take the sharpness off.
  • Non-conductive material.
  • Not hurt by UV light and will not yellow.
  • The Cockpit Organizer can be cleaned with the same products you use to clean aircraft windows. You can also use mild soap and water. Do not use anything that contains ammonia.
  • If you ever scratched the Cockpit Organizer, they can usually be buffed out using a product like Novus #2 or #3.
  • For the size and stability, it is lightweight.
  • Excellent chemical resistance.
  • In the unlikely event that acrylic plastic does break, it is designed to fracture into dull-edged pieces instead of sharp, dangerous shards.
  • Temperature resistant.

Fit Guide

The Cockpit Organizer 182 model will fit 182 Skylane, 205 Skywagon, 206 Stationair, 210 Centurions, and others with this available space. 18″ long 12″ tall 4.25″ wide.

  1. Kevin Horrell

    I love the Cockpit Organizer by Rare Aviation because I always have stuff and nowhere to put it. Handheld radio, fire extinguisher, PLB, POH, extra iPad, cables, batteries, etc., are now within easy reach. It’s lightweight, strong, easy to move when necessary, and clear so I can see everything. It’s the perfect cockpit organizer!

  2. Matt Hartwig (verified owner)

    It works great. Front edge could be rounded to keep from poking leg. Second and third pocket could be same size to act as additional cup holder. But I do love it the way it is. keeps my cockpit substantially more organized. Thanks

  3. Barry (verified owner)

    The organizer for perfectly between the seats in our 182 J ! I think it’s just the ticket to have items within the Pilot’s reach!

  4. Joseph Steele (verified owner)

    I like to make a binder of manuals to have in the plane. This is 8 1/2 plus the binder comb. There isn’t room for such a binder.

  5. Keith Campbell (verified owner)

    Both products (Baggage Organizer and Cockpit Organizer) fit perfectly and allow the badly needed organization in the Skylane. Excellent customer service as well.

  6. John H. (verified owner)

    It’s beautiful and functional. The only “problem “ is that my extinguisher’s handles are too long and prevent my182 CO from sitting flush on the floor. It just won’t fit and I’m not going to force it. I’ll put the extinguisher in an over the back of the seat pouch to keep it handy. The CO is like a work of art. Beautiful workmanship and perfect for my iPads, iPhone, pencils, pilot’s note board, hand-held radio and much, much more. Will definitely keep stuff off my lap or on floor. A great investment for cockpit management and efficiency.

  7. Frederick Prehn (verified owner)

    I have been looking for a simple, effective well built organizer for years. I found it. fits perfectly and stores my gear for quick access.

  8. Todd H. (verified owner)

    High quality product and as advertised. fits great in my C182N. Thanks!

    Works perfect!
