I probably watched the Ben Heck Show... way too much...
I think I'd also like a numpad, with maybe one more row of digits (or simply switching modes and use whole display when numpad is depressed), for entering a verb and object to the computer, and an execute button, for changing internal values on the ground, like the Apollo spacecraft computer did. For example, high and low ranges for every display, go flash the dots and give a verbal warning when outside range. The speaker is so you can hear output on the ground without having to put ear phones in... and maybe an "attract mode" routine like pinball / arcade machines had, for the occasional kid that wants to sit in your plane.
