Are cockpits waterproof, i.e. designed with the fact that a pilot might spill a hot or cold drink over the instruments by mistake?

    $\begingroup$ Minor nit, but a waterproof instrument panel (say) wouldn't prevent spills in the cockpit. The risk of spills is unchanged by whether the instrument panel is waterproof or not. What changes is the consequences of a spill. If anything, if everything is waterproof that might make pilots and others in the cockpit be less careful, because they know that the consequences are likely to be less severe. $\endgroup$ – user Jan 11 '18 at 14:57
