737 Yaw Damper Questions to Real World Pilots

Recommended Posts

Hello there...I have a couple of questions pertaining to the realistic function of the Yaw Damper.In my panel's current configuration at ground idle, the panel warning system displays "FLT CONT" with the Yaw Damper in the "off" position... is this correct? How and when does the "FLT CONT" warning display in reality?Pertaining to the Yaw Indicator... I'm assuming that the center section of the indicator moves laterally left and right, and that the two smaller "ticks" above and below the center of the indicator are immovable and are stationary... again is this correct? Also, when engaged, to which direction does the Yaw Damper Indicator move on "dampened" turns? The adverse affect of a "left" turn is for the nose of the aircraft to move in the opposite or "right" direction, so on left turns, does the initial movement of the damper indicator move to the left or to the right?And finally, the Yaw Damper Light... just to make certain, is it an amber or yellow color as I see in photos, and when does it illuminate... when the damper is "on" or "off"?Any help with this function would be appreciated...Best Regards,Kevin Sparkuhl
