Q regarding real Dash cockpit AP-disengage button.

In my P3D Dash-8 simulation. I discovered that while I was flying with AP engaged, and then pushed AP disengage button twice by mistake, the AP got engaged again. This 'caused an incident and I find it unsafe and unlike e.g. Boeing 737.

My question is how does it work in a real Dash, can the AP be set to engaged by pushing the red AP-disengage button on the yoke?
(I just want to be sure if I shall re-program my button for disengage only).

Best regards and thank's Lennart Vedin


  • Hello Lennart,

    The button on the yoke disengage the A/P and you cannot engage again with this button.
    It also resets the warnings.
