Virtual Museum - Throttle Quadrants

 
Ref. No. 723. NORTH AMERICAN T-6 HARVARD REAR THROTTLE QUADRANT. Circa 1940s.
Ref. No. 1205. MITSUBISHI A6M ZERO THROTTLE QUADRANT PLATE. This rare item made up part of the throttle quadrant, which was located on the port side of the cockpit wall. The left hand slot contained the aircraft's mixture control lever and the right hand slot had the aircraft's propeller pitch control (this regulated the RPM). The throttle lever was located to the left of this plate. Construction is aluminium with a serrated steel plate riveted to the rear of the right edge which would have held the pitch control lever in place via a spring mechanism.
