The Warning and Landing Display is located at the top of the left-hand side of the pilot’s instrument panel just above the Air Speed Indicator and Attitude Display Indicator. The pilot’s instruments for the most part were duplicated on the Co-pilots side however to add redundancy some of the instruments were supplied information by separate systems.
The left-hand illuminated push-button ‘AP’ will flash red if the Autopilot system is no longer functioning correctly. Pushing the button resets the system. The adjacent ‘AT’ illuminated push-button will flash red if the Autothrottle system is no longer functioning correctly. Pushing the button resets the system.
The central panel has the Aircraft Deviation Lights which are associated with the autopilot and/or flight director in the approach modes. The lighted strips around the aircraft symbol indicate the deviation from Localiser or Glide Slope. It would be expected that the AFCS would automatically correct for this deviation and these would go out.
LAND 2 and LAND 3 light will be green if the AFCS is working, and available to support an automatic landing in CAT2 or CAT3 conditions.
The DH – Decision height warning will light when the aircraft is flying under the height set into the associated radio altimeter. There is also a Test button to test all the warning lamps in this panel.
