The right sided pilot instrument panel was to allow potential RAF pilots to become familiar with a left hand throttle that would be essential if they become fast jet pilots. Having the pupil on the left side would mean that the instructor would not be able to reach it. Cadets from the age of 16+ learn to fly in the Tutor and if suitable will move on to the Tucano and then the Hawk where the innstructor sits behind and the throttle is on the left side on both.
