FLIGHT
CONTROLS
GENERAL
All
primary
and
secondary
flight
controls
are
fully
hydraulic
powered systems. There
is no
feedback of
control
surfaceforces
to the
pilots;
therefore,
all
control system
feel
is
artificially
induced.The
primary
flight
controls consist
ofinboard
and outboard ailerons, upper and
lower
two-segment rudders, and inboard andoutboard pairs of elevators. The secondary
flight
controls consist
of
inboard
and
outboard
leading
edge slats, inboard and outboard
trail-
ing
edge
flaps,
wing
spoilers,
and an
adjust-
able
horizontalstabilizer.
A
hydraulic
enhancement system ensures
enough
fluid
in
system
3
always
remains
for
pitch
and
roll
through
use of
horizontal stabi-
lizer
trim
and
lateral controls powered
by
sys-tem 3.
Refer
to the
Hydraulics
chapter for a
further
description.
DESCRIPTION
PRIMARY
FLIGHT CONTROLS
Lateral
Control
System
The
lateral control system
is
comprised
of
inboard and outboard ailerons,
with
each
sur-
face
powered
by two of the
three
hydraulic
systems.
Aileron
lateral control
is
augmented
on the
down-going
wing
by
wing
spoilersoperating
in
proportion
to
control wheel dis-placement and/or
speed
brake
input.
With
both
the
flaps
and
slats retracted
and the
alternate gear extension lever stowed, a lock-
out
mechanism
fairs
and
locks
the
outboard
ailerons
in the
neutral position.
In
this
config-
uration,
lateral control
is
provided
by theinboard
ailerons
and the
lateral
control
func-
tion
of the
wing
spoilers. When the
flaps
areextended more than
15
degrees
or the
slats
are
extended,
or the
alternate gear extension
lever
is raised, the outboard ailerons become
operable
to assist in low
speed
lateral control.
A
lateral
trim
system
is
provided.
Longitudinal Control
System
The longitudinal control system is comprised
of
inboard
and
outboard pairs
of
elevators,
with
each
surface
powered by two of the
three
hydraulic
systems.
The
elevators
incorporateanautomatic load
feel
system
which
varieselevator
feel
as a
function
of
airspeed
andhorizontal
stabilizer position.
The
load
feel
system
has backup
manual
control in the event
of
malfunction
of the
automatic system.
The
longitudinal
control system
is
provided
with
an
adjustable horizontal stabilizer
for
maintaining
longitudinal
trim.
Directional
Control
System
The
directional control system
is
comprised
of
anupperand
lower
rudder, each havingtwosegments. Each
forward
segment
of the
rud-dersispoweredby one of thethree
hydraulic
systems.
The aft
segment
of
each
rudder
is
hinged
to the
forward
segment and is mechan-
ically
bused
in such a manner
that
it
will
deflect
in the same direction as the
forward
segment to provide a more
effective
airfoil.
Non-reversible motor-pumps
are
provided
in
the
flight
controls system
which
will
auto-
matically
provide a standby source of
hydraulic
pressure
to the
upper
or
lower
rudderor
stabilizer
trim
should
the
normalpressure source
become
inoperative.Acompensator
with
a low
fluid
level switch
automatically
shuts
off hydraulic
flow
to
the non-reversible motor-pump in a hydrau-
lic
system with
low
fluid,
to
preclude damage
to the
hydraulic
system.
