The next section labeled REMOTE THROT-
TLE CONTROL (F) has two levers for controlling
the speed of the GGs, one lever for each GG.
These levers can be locked together so that when
the GTEs operate together, their speed will be the
same. On either side of the REMOTE THROT-
TLE CONTROL levers are edgewise meters
labeled THROTTLE LEVER POSITION, one
for each GTE. The meters are always showing the
position of the throttle in percentage of power.
This is regardless of how the GTE or GTEs are
being controlled. Above each edgewise meter is
a split-legend indicator. The upper half reads PLA
FAIL, the lower half reads PLA IDLE. When the
PLA IDLE indicator illuminates, the throttles are
setting at the idle position; the idle position is 13
degrees of PLA. When the PLA FAIL indicator
illuminates, the throttle is at some position less
than 13 degrees of PLA, or a processor failure
