3 digit reminder for 737 yoke
« on: December 23, 2010, 04:33:01 AM »
I now got *real* yokes, but these came without the thumbwheels.
If you know of any, please let me know.

Check with Nick at APHS. They're lighted too.

Apparently Nick at APHS has some but here is what he says about them, and I quote:

"...727,737,747 trip number reminder.
That's a lie that has become sort of fact by accident.
Started out as an ALTITUDE reminder, so most of these start at #4 in the left column and go no higher.
You know why don't you? When it was realized that this thing cost the airlines about $400 each,
but exactly ZERO pilots ever used them, they added the 5-0 digits and called them trip number reminders.
Number of pilots that used it for that...ZERO. ....."

I bought the yokes from him, and apparently he only got one and thatone in bad shape.
I'll give him a request anyway

I don't know, SAS use them in the flightdeck DVD I've got!

I never set mine. I know what flight it is and I have it written down. I always forget to play with the thumbwheels.

Apparently according to Nick, so did everyone else.

Mine came with one from an American 727 that he flew regularly. I wonder if he ever set it?

Also according to nick everything he has is ULTRA RARE!  LOL  There are 4 ULTRA RARE 737 fire panels on ebay besides the ones he has.  I have a few 737 inflight dvds and they all used the reminder for their flight number.
