So, I have seen some people on the Internet showing the 738's PFD circular gauge for RA, but others show that the gauge is used for AOA(angle of attack). Which one is true? Is there a switch to change the circular PFD gauge between RA and AOA?

It’s a customer option (i.e. the operator can choose and specify) to switch between the two; presumably by pin programming the computer responsible for generating the display symbols.

  • $\begingroup$ @lpydawa Neither. I’m pretty sure it can be changed during maintenance input (if the option to be allowed to do so has been bought from Boeing for the particular aircraft in question). Maybe someone else can confirm? $\endgroup$ – Cpt Reynolds Jan 21 at 9:20
