Can't find free image
I tried a google image search of faa.gov and af.mil for good images of a yoke and couldn't find nothin' that would qualify. Odd. knoodelhed 12:28, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Is it really also called a stearing wheel?
What does this article need?
What does this article need, to bring it up to scratch and out of stub class status?
From my point of view, there is not a lot more that can be added, without duplicating info already in articles like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aircraft_flight_control_systems. Any suggestions as to what more we can do to improve this article? Whippen (talk) 11:38, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
As far as I know, nobody in aviation uses the term "joystick", it's always "side-stick" (Airbus) or plain "stick" (or "centre-stick"). I'm going to correct the article accordingly, but I'd welcome any comments or corrections. Ptrt (talk) 19:24, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
As far as I know, I only use the term "joystick", as do all of the pilots I know who fly light aircraft. "Yoke" is reserved for those aircraft like the Cessna 150/152 that have what, to non-pilots, looks like a steering wheel. Emeraude (talk) 15:26, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
