B737-300 Throttle Quadrant Trim Wheels Spinning

OEM Boeing 737-300 series throttle quadrant converted for flight simulator use. The Stab trim wheels rotate on on input from the electrical trim switches on the yoke. Trim indicator tabs move in association with wheels spinning to indicate what trim the aircraft is currently in. To stop the wheels from spinning (can be annoying & noisy) the Stab Trim Cut Off switch has been programmed to cut power to the motor that drives the wheels. The trim tabs, however, still move as trim is adjusted on the yoke.  This throttle unit has since been replaced by a later model throttle quadrant.  Furthermore, a better system has also been augmented to engage the trim wheels and trim indicator tabs.

 

 Weber Pilot Seat Adjustments

 

Two matching B737 Weber pilot seats are used in the B737 simulator. The seats were retrieved from a South West B737 that was destined for the wrecking yard. This video demonstrates the range of movements that the seats are capable of.

Loosing The Ability To Fly - Aircraft Automation Dependency

This lecture video discusses the implications arising from automation dependency and how airlines are attempting to solve the issue.  I found the presentation to be very informative, amusing in parts and helps to explain "What's it doing now"......   The video has been embedded directly from U-Tube.
