I think in PSX there will be no graphical representation of the yokes. So I assume that autopilot disconnect switches, PTT and stab trim switches are only accessible via shortcuts. And what about the aileron trim scales?

Thanks Walter

Hardy Heinlin

A sim specific digital indication may occur above the aileron trim switches:

(Aileron offsets are also visible on the small yoke indicator in the window corner and on the EICAS status display.)

Hardy, did you ever count the buttons -- all of them?

Hardy Heinlin

Yes, but I forgot to write down the number :-)


Non-747 pilot question: How come the rudder trim indicator doesn't have a pointer?

Because it's an Alpha version.


Does the real airplane have any aileron trim indicators?  If not, how do you know they're set properly before takeoff?

Just a mechanical indication on the yoke (hands off and A/P off):

(And the EICAS stuff.)



Aha. right.  Thanks.
