Unfortunately PMDG doesn't model the AP disconnect switch which is located on the control wheel on the real aircraft. Or at least I haven't found it so far. The function I found doesn't really disconnect the AP, but cycles the AP functions.If you are in CWS, activating the function sets your AP into CMD, then Off, and then back into CMD. THe AP disco light continues to flash (except if you re-engage the AP)The real disconnect switch will disconnect any AP function (be it CMD or CWS), then a continous whailer sounds (again, not simulated) and a second push on the switch silences the whailer and extinguished the flashing light. Any further presses on the Disco switch have no effect.I can't comment on PMDG A/T disconnect function as I never used it (didn't know it existed). It works the same as the AP disco switch (in reality) with the exception that there is no aural warning - all you hear is how the magnetically held A/T switch drops to off - quite loud.Regards,Mark
