HI all,Many time wondering what are those three little switches with numbers in the right top of the Capt. yoke (or left top in the FO yoke). See pic attached. Thanksejemplo06.jpg

The pilots can turn the numbers on the yoke to match the flightnumber. That makes it a lot easier to remember you flightnumber when you have 6 flights a day all with a different number.

I've check this on the NGX and, of course, is modeled. But what about flight numbers with 4 digits?

Well then you are out of luck :) Different airlines/pilots use this for different things. One use I have seen is setting reference airspeed.
