Yes, I agree. What I meant is that the OFF indication is on forward most position of the switch, Which does in fact turn the lights on.

 

That annoyed the .... out of me too.

No it is not. On any airplane ON should.... Always mean the switch points toward the nose. Off toward the tail. 

 

Disagree completely. Boeing even has options to reverse the ON-OFF philosophy dependent on the companies preference. 

Some preferer up = on and down= off.

The labelling is correct ,as well as the switch direction, however the off position should be what is now the on position and the on position should move forward from that.

Agree. Switches are "virtually" installed 180 deg incorrect. So Aerosoft, get a virtual avionics specialist out there, reverse the switches (rotate each switch 180 deg) and switch the wiring so OFF is dead center and ON is FWD.

As Jake pointed out, in he real Twin Otter the landing lights switches are 'On' when they are moved forward, and 'Off' when move backward.

This is correctly implemented in our Twin Otter.

The position of the switches are also very close to reality. I tried to find a video of a real life Twin Otter to show this, but it is hard to see.

Anne, one of the Twin Otter modellers, has adjusted the angle of the switches a bit, so the positions are more clear.

This will be included in the next Twin Otter update and will look like this:
