This is the Pilot’s Control Panel for the flight control system. The panel allows selection of Pitch, Roll and Yaw stabilisation. Selection of Instrument Landing System or Attitude Hold and Glideslope selection. The Instrument Landing System (ILS) enables pilots to fly the aircraft to Decision Height above the runway and a Runway Visual Range (RVR, the effective range at which the runway can be seen. This is the basic capability of the system.
There is a selection for ILS or ATT which sets the autopilot into attitude hold mode, rejecting the glide slope signal until the flare commences. The item was acquired on eBay.
