For a Piper Application, I can now provide an add-on to your yoke for the CWS and PPT.

The picture is for the yoke mounted single trim button. I left an opening so the wires for the trim do not have to be disconnected. That switch is crazy expensive and this was my solution.

If you don't have the trim switch, I can make this without the opening for the switch or the wires to pass thru.

These are machined aluminum and come either bare or powder coated black. Holes for the yoke are pre drilled and mounting screws are provided (standard Piper thread). You or your installer will have to drill the holes needed for the PPT and CWS. You may want a different configuration, so this is up to you.

Cost is $100 and includes shipping to the CONUS. I will quote additional shipping costs as needed. Lead time is 7-10 days.

100% Money back if you buy one and don't like it within 5 days of purchase (you are responsible to ship it back).

PM me with questions.

I have a picture of the 3D test fit. I’ll ask member dufur2003 to post a shot when he gets time.

Here is the other design. No trim hole. If you have a round trim switch or other switches, you can simply drill your own holes to match.

Same price. Installed pictures coming soon.

Careful Dave, you could get yourself in hot water. There is no such thing as owner supplied part. Here is some good reading for you.

I do respect any article from Mike Busch and I do appreciate your concern.

As this part is produced, sold and installed, I have told the buyers that it is up to their AP / AI to sign off on the usage. Whether or not that happens is not on me. I am in no way offering this as a PMA'd part or even a replacement part as it is NEITHER of those. It is simply an add-on to a yoke. If the purchaser decides to install it without consulting the FSDO or their AP / AI, again, not on me.

It was originally designed to be sold with a certain auto-pilot, but was not cost effective to mass produce. So it is offered here as a solution. I'm sure that S-Tech doesn't have a PMA for their yoke extension that they include with their kit, although I'm sure it is an included part and part of the install. I cannot confirm that information though.

I suppose that may ruffle a few feathers, I can always just leave the holes out and let who ever wants one "modify it" however they want for "whatever" purpose they choose to use it for. I would think that it would be a simple field approval or even a call to the FSDO.

As the seller of the product that you advertise for installation on a certified aircraft, you bear the responsibility. Call your FSDO and ask them.
