    Cirrus is a side yoke. Not a side stick. Two different things.

    Where did you get the electo- luminescent labels done? That is really cool!

    I don’t think they’re electro luminescent labels, it looks like a laser engraved (or silk screened) acrylic panel with EL backlighting.

    (Ignore the yellow arrow. It’s the fuel tank.)

    The stick moves fore-and-aft like a yoke, but pivots left-and-right like a sidestick. It’s quite clever the way both ailerons and elevator are rod-activated, giving a very solid feel while still feeling quite conventional.
