Simply removing the bar is the easiest path towards regaining visibility in the center view, and that's something that I greatly desire.
This creates a somewhat jarring aesthetic, though. Unfortunately, I can't think of anyway to adjust it without requiring a certain amount of redesign of the external cockpit as well as internal, which is no small amount of work.
I do like the external aesthetic of the cockpit as it is, and the only way to keep it is to simply find a way to move the internal seat downward and possibly some forward. Alas, there's quite a bit of detail work down there, and I'm sure it's fitted to that vertical height.
Ultimately, the devs will have to decide on how much time they can afford to spend on it versus the return on effort. I would put forward that the interceptor is ultimately going to be the most used craft in the game and likely the player's first and most lasting impression.
