Anti Ice/Antenna Selector Panel

This panel consists of two panels, the Anti Ice Panel and the Antenna Selector Panel. Using the Anti Ice Panel anti-icing functions are powered. If ice formation is detected, the INLET ICING warning light becomes lit on the Caution Panel. Using the Antenna Selector Panel, the pilot can optimise the signals of IFF / UHF. The Anti Ice / Antenna Selector Panel is located at the right console.
