Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The system assist a single pilot to manage an IFR-operated flight. The design is clearly oriented to provide quick access to the requested information and to handle the data as quickly as possible. The goal is to relieve the pilot and reduce the pilot's workload.
* 2. Baro knob to adjust the altimeter setting {{key press|wheel up}} for +, {{key press|wheel down}} for - and {{key press|wheel press}} set 1013 (standard)
* L1-6 and R1-6 "Line Select Key"(LSK) is a rocker switch and can have two functions left/right indicated in the display
* LK and RK rotary knob usable with {{key press|wheel up}}, {{key press|wheel down}} and {{key press|wheel press}} and +{{key press|shift}} increases decreases the amount
* Page Select Key is a rocker switch first {{key press|mouse left}} select the page then {{key press|mouse left}} navigate through the tabs left/right
* R5 : Set VS
* RK : adjusts the selected bug, default Heading
==={{key press|L1}} : Primary Nav===
Enables you 3 sources [Nav1|Nav2|FMS] to drive the autopilot.
'''Nav1 Nav2'''
Autopilot in NAV mode will follow the radio navigation aids VOR, LOC or ILS.
With the rotary knob {{key press|LK}} you can select the course and sync by pushing the wheel.
VOR sync bearing.
LOC sync course line.
[[#NAV_:_Navigation_Frequencies| HowTo input Frequencies]]
Autopilot in NAV/GPSS mode will follow the flightplan as filed.
With the rotary knob {{key press|LK}} you can adjust the course to a waypoint. The FMS will switch in OBS mode and use the course as a radial for the given waypoint.
==={{key press|L3}} : Bearing Ptr===
Enables you to display a bearing to the selected navigation source [Nav1|Nav2|FMS]. The pointer is only visible if the source is in range.
==={{key press|L5}} : Fly Vectors===
This is your hook to the FMS. IF you flying FMS you can leave the route by pressing the {{key press|L5}} and follow the HDG bug. The flightplan is still active and by crossing the route again the FMS will intercept the LEG to continue the route.
==={{key press|R2}} : Timer===
Press {{key press|R2}} to start the timer then you can reset the running timer or stop it. Reset a stopped timer will set it back to zero.

The rotary knob {{key press|RK}} will adjust the selected bug. By pressing the knob you can sync the bug.
After 10sec of no input it will switch back to the HDG bug selection.

The keypad has a QWERTY layout with a few special function buttons along the outer edges and a row of number keys along the top of the keypad.
The display has two areas : a semi-permanent screen for com and nav frequencies on the left. On the right half there arethe are the relevant data displayed acording according to the performed operation on the keypad (e.g. transponder code input, autopilot sttingssettings, FMS data entry, etc).
All edits are "live edits" in that they are immediately applied.
==COM : Communication Frequencies==
Communication tunning tuning on the keyboard. Selecting the {{key press|Com1}} or {{key press|Com2}} with the top left short-keys activates the standby frequency for input.
With the number keys {{key press|0-9}} you can enter the new freqency frequency the leading 1__.__ must not typed in. With the {{key press|CLR}} Key the input is cleared, {{key press|CNCL}} cancels the input and {{key press|ENTER}} or the Swap Key on the left display side confirm the freqencyfrequency. Also a time out will confirm the input.
After input time out the left screen will display the via audiopanel selected com radio transceiver and wait for input.
==NAV : Navigation Frequencies==
Navigation tunning tuning on the keyboard. Selecting the {{key press|Nav1}} or {{key press|Nav2}} with the top left short-keys activates the standby frequency for input.
Input handling is the same like Communication Frequencies.
==XPDR : Transponder==
Transponder setting on the keyboard. Selecting the {{key press|XPDR}} Key will show the transpoder transponder screen on the right. With the keyboard you can enter the new code.
Pressing {{key press|Mode}} will switch through the transponder modes [GND, ON, ALT ,OFF, SBY, TST]. The {{key press|VFR}} Key sets the transponder code to the default VFR code 7000.
{{key press|IDENT}} sets the transponder in ident mode.
==AUX : DME==
The keypad can drive a external is used to tune the DME reciverreceiver to Nav1, located left of the pilot yokeNav2, Nav1 Hold or Nav2 Hold. By pressing Pressing the {{key press|Aux}} button shows a list of the two active nav freqenciesfrequencies. With the bottom right {{key press|knob FMS}} bottom right knob the freqency frequency can be selected and will send to tune the DME reciverreceiver. If the active freqnecy frequency is changed it , the DME will also send it again be tuned to the DME recivernew frequency. To supress the overriding you This behavior can select be suppressed by selecting the "HOLD" freqencyfrequency.
