    Thanks Don,
    Can you explain what should happen with these?
    AP disconnect i understand, but others.
    Is stab trim nose up&down and rudder trim?
    What about that rear switch?
    Thanks

    Marco

    Re: need help with 777 yoke swiches.

    Stab Trim is Nose Up and Down.....nothing to do with Rudder Trim

    The back switch is a rocker switch with the top portion being a PPT, Push to Talk switch, doing the same job as the MIC switch on the outer Glare panel and the MIC switch on the Audio Control Panel on the Pedestal.
    The bottom portion is an intercom switch for communication between pilots....in older aircraft it is spring loaded back to centre, but more recent aircraft it is notbspring loaded to centre.

    Re: need help with 777 yoke swiches.

    Hi Marco.

    I think you are a little confused on the trim switches. There are two switches facing the pilot for the trim at the top of the yoke.

    They are both for trim up and trim down. Both have to be moved in the same direction to command the trim to move. One switch powers the motor and the other switch grounds the motor. So if you push only one of the switches nothing will happen. This is a safety feature to prevent accidental movement of the trim.

    Hope this makes it clearer for you.
    Tom.
