Yeah, I always fly with autopilot turned on (even when dog fighting lol). In fact, engaging autopilot is one of the first things I do after takeoff. It help so much with the trim that there is really no need to fly with it off in any situation imo.

This is pretty standard for SAS equipped fighters like the F-4 phantom as well. Since most swept wing jets experience high AOA roll reversal the SAS functions become counterproductive at high AOA.

Ah okay. I wasn’t aware there was a difference. That makes sense now and opens another can of worms regarding other things I’ve cited. What exactly does HB model so I can get the correct information?

So do you flip any of the hold switches or just the engage switch?

The AFCS SAS system that was fitted to all F-14s (A/B/D) from introduction till 1998-2000 when the fleet was upgraded with DFCS starting with the F-14A models.

I hit the paddle switch disconnect when I want full control of the bird, and it really is a different dance with only yaw sas on.

AP is excellent when on approach, it lightens pilot load, it’s essential in turbulence, and Case 3.
Other than that cruising with AP is a no brainer.
