The KAP 140 is a high-performance digital, panel-mounted autopilot sys-
tem for light aircraft.
1. AUTOPILOT ENGAGE/DISEN-
GAGE (AP) BUTTON - When
pushed, engages autopilot if all logic
conditions are met. The autopilot
will engage in the basic roll (ROL)
mode which functions as a wing lev-
eler. When pressed again, will disen-
gage the autopilot. For software ver-
sion 03/01 and later, the AP button
must be pressed and held for 0.25
seconds to engage the autopilot.
2. ROLL AXIS (R) ANNUNCIATION

of the roll axis and will disengage the
autopilot and not allow engagement.
3. HEADING (HDG) MODE SELEC-
TOR BUTTON - When pushed, will
select the Heading mode, which
commands the airplane to turn to
and maintain the heading selected
by the heading bug on either the DG
or HSI. A new heading may be
selected at any time and will result in
the airplane turning to the new head-
ing. Button can also be used to tog-
gle between HDG and ROL modes.
This button will engage the autopilot
in units with software prior to soft-
ware version 03/01.
4. NAVIGATION (NAV) MODE
SELECTOR BUTTON - When
pushed, will arm the navigation
mode. The mode provides auto-
matic beam capture and tracking of
VOR, LOC or GPS as selected for
presentation on the HSI or CDI.
NAV mode is recommended for
enroute navigation tracking.
