The GF-MCP has numerous displays, knobs, and other controls on its panel, and is capable of simulating autopilot equipment that is typically found on a wide range of aircraft.

The GF-MCP’s panel design is not intended to “copy” any one specific real-world autopilot, but rather to provide as much autopilot functionality as possible while you enjoy flying many different types of simulated aircraft. Following are descriptions of each of the elements on the GF-MCP control panel:

CRS (Course) Adjustment Knob and Display
This knob selects a heading value from 1 to 360 degrees, which represents a radial to the VOR station that is currently tuned on the NAV1 radio. This heading value is also known as the OBS1 heading. The currently set value is shown on the 3-digit LED display under the CRS label on the panel. The CRS value is used in conjunction with the NAV button beneath the knob.

HDG (Heading) Adjustment Knob and Display
This knob selects a heading value from 1 to 360 degrees, and is used to establish and maintain the aircraft’s heading when the HOLD button beneath the knob is activated. The currently-set value is shown on the 3-digit LED display under the HDG label on the panel.

IAS/MACH (Speed) Adjustment Knob and Display
This knob selects an airspeed value, displayed either in Knots Indicated Airspeed (IAS) or MACH Number,on the 3-digit LED display under the IAS/MACH label on the panel. On aircraft featuring an autothrottle, this is used to establish and maintain the aircraft’s speed when the HOLD button beneath the knob is activated.

SEL (Speed Display Select) Button
The Speed Display Select button switches the airspeed display value between Knots Indicated Airspeed and MACH Number. On aircraft panels where MACH Hold and IAS Hold are represented using individual buttons, when Speed Hold is engaged, pushing the Speed Display Select button will toggle between IAS Hold and MACH Hold, to remain synchronized with the value shown in the speed readout.

VERT SPD (Vertical Speed) Adjustment Wheel and Display
The Vertical Speed adjustment wheel selects a rate of climb or descent, the currently-selected value being shown on the 6-digit LED display under the V/S label on the panel.

ALT (Altitude) Adjustment Knob and Display
This knob selects an altitude value, and is used to establish and maintain the aircraft’s altitude whenever the HOLD button beside the knob is activated. The currently-selected altitude is shown on the 6-digit LED display beneath the ALT label on the panel.

NAV Button
This button engages and disengages the NAV Hold function. When the button’s internal LED is lit, the NAV Hold mode is engaged.

HDG HOLD Button
This button engages and disengages the Heading Hold function. When the button’s internal LED is lit, the Heading Hold mode is engaged.

Speed HOLD Button
This button engages and disengages the Speed Hold function. When the button’s internal LED is lit, the Speed Hold mode is engaged.

Altitude HOLD Button
This button engages and disengages the Altitude Hold function. When the button’s internal LED is lit, the Altitude Hold mode is engaged.

Approach Hold (APPR) Button
This button engages and disengages the Approach Hold function. When the button’s internal LED is lit, the Approach Hold mode is engaged.

Back Course Hold (B/C) Button
This button engages and disengages the Back Course Hold function. When the button’s internal LED is lit, the Back Course Hold mode is engaged.

Autopilot Command (A/P CMD) Button
This button engages and disengages the Autopilot Command function. This is the master switch for all other autopilot modes, and must be activated in order for any other autopilot modes to function. When the button’s internal LED is lit, Autopilot Command is engaged.

Disengage Control Bar
The disengage control bar is similar to those found on large commercial jet aircraft. Its purpose is to quickly turn off any and all functions of the autopilot. This allows the pilot to regain manual control of the aircraft at any desired time. When the disengage control bar is in the DOWN position, the autopilot is disengaged and no autopilot modes will function. When the bar is in the UP position, the autopilot can be activated, and its modes engaged or disengaged using the individual HOLD buttons.

Compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 and Flight Simulator 2004 and Flight Simulator X, and X-Plane.
