Electric Trim Switch Plate Options:
Note: The Cygnet electric trim switch is generally prefered over the "paddle" style
switch supplied by Garmin with the GFC-500 auto pilot. The Cygnet trim switch is essentially
identical to the S-Tec autopilot trim switch and can be used interchangeably.
Avion does NOT supply an electric trim switch, which can be purchased separately from Cygnet Industries,
or Aircraft Spruce. The "paddle switch" is supplied by Garmin with the GFC-500 autopilot installation.
Avion recommends Otto Mil-Spec switches, for PTT Otto P7-5A1122 (Black Actuator) and for A/P Disconnect
Otto P7-5A1121 (Red Actuator)
