    Default Safe flight Indicator

    WHAT IN THE WORLD is the "Safe flight indicator"? According to the parts manual, it has a 5 amp fuse in the "Starter And Master Switch" box. Thanks. Dennis mudman@windstream.net

    It's a stall warning switch that's mounted in the leading edge of one wing with a light and horn on the panel. I believe it's covered by some articles in Tips and Techniques. If you need more data on it, let me know and I'll see what I can find.

    Thanks. The sensor must be buried in the leading edge, somehow, because nothing protrudes. As for in-cockpit alerts, nada. I did just have installed an AV-20-S with all the bells and whistles, but there’s no six-year-old around to help me program it.

    That's because most Tri-Pacers were made without them. I believe it was a option at the time. I have only seen a couple of Tri-Pacers with a "Safe Flight Sensor".
