    AUTOTHROTTLE for TURBO PROPS

    I am starting to fly online, and I need to maintain a specific speed as directed by ATC. At the moment this is proving to be difficult whilst attending to other aspects of flying and I wondered if anyone knows how to apply an autothrottle to a turboprop (I fly a Twin Otter),
    I have looked on the net, but with not much help! I presume that the aircraft cfg and the air file are involved?
    I would really appreciate some advice.

    Many thanks.

    Auto Throttle systems are never fitted to turbo props, due to the fact props have variable pitch blades.

    Of course, REAL aircraft cannot use A/T, but I understand that SIMULATED aircraft CAN? This is due to the fact that the plane is not REAL and is simply governed by the function of a computer?
    I have found some suggestions, but none that work with the Otter!

    An ideas anyone?
