Pilots Control Column ready for fitting

The Control Column operates the ailerons by rotating the wheel and operates the elevator by moving the whole column backwards and forwards. The ailerons are operated via chain drives that pass down though the hollow column. The left sector of the wheel is fitted with the brake lever and two press buttons,

at the top left of the column is a boss on the casting that allows an extension for a second pilots control wheel to be fitted for training purposes.
