Autopilot mode controller moved to panel.

Recommended Posts

I much prefer to have the AP mode controller where I can see it, rather than down on the floor.

 

That is one of the reasons I like the B1900 better than the King Airs.

 

Here are the coordinates for the switch (the annunciator moves down to the FMC position, assuming you have disabled it..)

King Air 250/350 with Pro Line 21. AP/FD Mode panel under the Warning Panel.

When you are flying the King Air, even those with the FD/AP on the lower pedestal it is not that hard to reach and use. As your hand drops from the Power levers it falls right onto the FD/AP panel. It sits just slightly lower than your lap. Very easy to use.

In the real world, totally agree.  With FSX on a 27" monitor, not so much  :unsure:
