Autopilot System Check (KFC 250).
Ensure that the autopilot has been disengaged and
check that the aircraft manual trim indicator is set to
the takeoff position before takeoff. Operating the
autopilot on the ground may cause the autotrim to
run because of back force generated by the elevator
downsprings or pilot induced forces.
If the AUTOPILOT circuit breaker is pulled, the red
TRIM failure annunciator light on the autopilot
annunciator panel will be disabled and only the aural
alert will sound if an electric trim malfunction occurs.
Verify that all autopilot modes are disengaged.
