Prop flights

Recommended Posts

Guest

Well guys I'm taking a break from my 767 and I want to make some flights with a Beech aircraft. How does the autopilot works with this kind of aircraft? In Boeing and other jet aircraft for a basic flight you just need to set your altitude, speed and heading and you're ready. But the a/p on prop aircraft ins't that obvious. Can you guys help?Cheers!

I fly strictly Props and most of them are the same except they don't usually have a speed control. The FSD Cheyenne has a speed hold that will pretty much lock your throttles where they are set but will not accelerate or slowdown to follow an autopilot speed input like a jet. Some others have no such speed control at all, you just have to get good at figuring out power settings to achieve your desired speeds. As far as altitude and heading, NAV and approach just set altitude and heading bug to desired altitude and heading then engage altitude hold and heading hold. Then steer with the HDG bug to intercept your Nav needle and you can select NAV and it will track it for you. Works pretty much the same as the rest of them from there. Hope this explains what you are after. Happy Flying!http://www.ktone.org/images/FSD_ken.jpg
