what is the minimum number of wire supports per deck pendants on the chain arrest gear?
the deck pendant on the E-5 chain gear may be inspected in the installed position under what condition?
when the engaging speed is less than 100 knots and the a/c runout distance is less than 500ft
when should you remove both arresting cables and thoroughly inspect them for deformation and wear?
when the engaging speed is from 100-150knots and the a/c runout distance is over 500ft
what is the primary and secondary method used to measure aircraft runout and the length of chain pullout for the E-5 arresting gear?
primary= painted marks on the runway
secondary=painted marks on the chain
what will the runout distance normally be?
twice the chain length plus 1/2 the arresting cable length
how should one decide the maximum chain length that should be used for a given available runout area?
available runout length
subtract 1/2 the arresting cable length, then divide the remainder by 2
