Hi Clayton,I think CWS, or Control Wheel Steering, is pretty well covered in the manual. ;-) You could also try a search on this forum for CWS as it has been widely discussed in the past.But in short it's a sort of fly-by-wire technology. You enter an aircraft attitude with your yoke, pitch and roll axises, and the a/c's automatic flight systems will keep that attitude. Roll attitude less than 6 degrees will put the aircraft in level flight with regards to roll axis.On the NG you have two annunciations CWS P, which stands for control wheel steering in pitch mode. And CWS R which stand for control wheel steering in roll mode. You can use either mode independently of the other.Hope it helps,
