What is the function of the horizontal stabilizer?
Logitudinal contol(pitch). Fore and aft movement of stick.
Where is the horizontal stabilizer?
Connected to empennage(tail), left and right sides that rotate as a unit.
What is the function of the Rudder?
Directional control(YAW). Pedals in cockpit.
Where is the Rudder?
Aft edge of vertical fin at 2 hinge points. Rudder actuator attaches at lower section.
What is the function of the speed brakes?
Reduces speed of A/C. Primarily to keep A/C from building up excessive speed during dives.
Where are the speed brakes?
trailing tip of each wing tip outboard of flaps.
What is the function of the hydraulic reservoirs?
Stores fluid. 2 on A/C.
Where are the hydrauilic reservoirs?
Flight HR on right side aft & below Stbd engine intake below boarding ladder. Combine HR under port wing root above port fwd engine bay door.
What is the function of the hydraulic pumps?
moves fluid through the system. Power driven primary source of energy. Engine or electric. May sometimes have hand pump.
What is the funtion of the actuators?
Transforms hyd fluid pressure into mechanical force producing work(moving mechanisms)
What is the function of the accumulators?
Store volume of liquid under pressure. Acts as cushion against pressure surges.
What is the function of the landing gear?
Supports weight. Fully retractable. Provides complete carrier & land takeoff & landing capability.
What is the function of the nose landing gear?
Interconnected to main gear. Air-oil shock strut, duel wheels, tubeless tires, supporting drag strut & nose wheel steering and damper system.
Where is the Nose Landing Gear?
Forward under cockpit
