Just the very basics switches and knobs, to engage the Mad Dog’s autopilot… (Working the panel from left to right)
- Turn FD switch on
- Dial in desired airspeed and flip on AUTO THROT, press SPD SEL
- Dial in desired heading, pull the HDG knob out to select heading mode
- Dial in desired ALT and VS, press VERT SPD; flip AP ON to enable A/P
Check the green readout above the altimeter, you should have SPD nnn, HDG SEL, VERT SPD indicated to confirm that A/P is engaged.
That’s not the full story, of course. Hope there’s enough to get you started.
