This overhead switch unit is from the pre-production Automatic Flight Control System Engage Switch Panel which used five similar modules for Autostabiliser Engage, Electric Trim Engage and Artificial Feel Engage. The switches are engaged before take-off, are solenoid held and except in the event of failure require no further pilot action until after landing.
This unit is the Artificial Feel Engage Switch Unit. The Engage Switches are installed as a panel of five and there are two of these assemblies either side of the central Electric Trim Unit.
