    Is it a throttle, power lever or thrust lever?

    I noticed from a few posts that builders are referring to a B737 Throttle. We call the throttle different things here in Southern Africa:

    Throttle: C172 etc (Piston Aircraft)
    Power Levers: B1900C (Turboprop)
    Thrust Levers B737 (Jets)

    Pilatus call it the PCL (Power Control Lever).

    I was wondering what is it called elsewhere?

    In GA terms in UK ive heard alot of pilots especially instructors call it 'power lever' as in 'add power', and sometimes 'throttle lever', but i refer to the C182 as 'the throttle' along with 'mix' and 'pitch'. 'The Throttle' says it all!
