Wicket Tabs

Wicket tabs are devices that help the crew member activate controls when his vision is degraded. The tabs provide the crew member with tactile cues to the location of controls to be activated as well as a memory aid to their function, sequence of activation and other pertinent information. Wicket tabs are found on controls that are difficult to see during the ascent and entry flight phases on panels O8, C3 and R2.
