AP Won't Turn On for TBM 930

I am new to flying the TBM930. I setup the AP HDG and VS and ALT but the AP won’t engage via my Saitek Yoke or by pressing the button in FS.

Is there something else I need to do to engage the AP?

I am used to flying the CJ4 and Bonanza G36. So maybe this aircraft has a different checklist for engaging the AP.

Thanks.

I bet you “forgot” to flip the switch on the right side of the overhead panel.

The AP/TRIM switch!? I saw it but wasn’t sure what it was for. You know the rule if you don’t know what it is for don’t touch it. :upside_down_face: :upside_down_face: :upside_down_face:

Thanks I have it engaged now.

I’m not so sure about the mixMugz mod.
As far as I can tell, it hasn’t been updated since SU4 where many of the things it modifies where addressed.

If you want to know what other switches are I made a video covering every switch, button, and almost every system on the TBM 930 using the pilot’s operating handbook for the airplane. The COMPLETE TBM 930 Tutorial - Microsoft Flight Simulator - YouTube
