Can't find free image[edit]

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)

I found several. http://images.google.com/images?svnum=10&hl=en&lr=&safe=off&q=airplane+yoke+&btnG=Search

None of those are in the public domain čĥàñľōŕď 23:22, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
I'm guessing this is no longer required, but I took a photo of the cockpit of a Cessna 152 a few weeks ago. Let me know if you would like to use the yoke portion of the picture in this article. Whippen (talk)

Is it really also called a stearing wheel?

What does this article need?[edit]

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)

Joystick?[edit]

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)
