    Column Yoke with Clip Board?

    Hey guys, finally got my Column Yoke, with pedals and wanted to know, without going to staples and hot gluing a brown clip board to it. Is the a chart holder out there that can mount to it, preferably on that's black with a metal plate for the chart or whatever to rest on? Here's what the yoke looks like.

    I was going to refer you to Aircraft Spruce but all of theirs are shaft mounts. They have nothing for a column mounted yoke.

    The center of your yoke sits relatively low in relation to the horns. Anything you mount to the center is likely to be too low to be able to read anything well. Especially if it isn't adjustable for tilt.

    I'd remove the yoke center and build a custom center that was taller so that you can build or buy a clipboard to mount to it. Without seeing it in person, I don't know exactly how to tell you to do this.

    Mike has a good point. With the shape of the Saab yoke it will not look good.
    Do not forget that the data on the approach plate have to be memorized and the piece of paper is there only for a quick confirmation or double check, The holder can be installed on the left window sill too, as it is on some airliners.(Airbus has no yoke to put it on!!)
    Buy a paper holder with a nice clip at your local Office supply, cut an aluminum plate to your liking and rivet/bolt the clip on it.

    I'm sure PFC do one -- I have nice A5 sized chart holders with clips on the Jetliner yokes in my PFC 737NG, and they came from PFC a couple of years ago I think. The yokes i have aren't the SAAB models, but the centre part, where the chart holder fits, is the same.

    That looks like a PFC yoke and peddle set. PFC makes the chart holders for those yokes.
