Autopilot disconnects

Recommended Posts

I was playing with the autopilot on with no problems and then all of a sudden it disengaged and no longer will we engage. I have no warning lights hydraulics are on everything looks good yet the autopilot will not engage.

It seems that my flight director switch is on but the light indicator is off but flight director has the green light indicator.

Search the Intro Manual for "shear pin" for more information about what Mark mentioned.
