The primary flight controls are elevators, ailerons, and rudders. The controlcolumn, control wheel, and rudder pedals control these flight control surfaces. The primary flight controls are powered by redundant hydraulic systems; there is nomanual reversion.Secondary flight controls include a moveable horizontal stabilizer, spoilers, andleading and trailing edge flaps. Spoilers operate differentially to assist ailerons for roll control and symmetrically as speedbrakes.There are six guarded flight control shutoff switches that control hydraulic power to the ailerons, spoilers, elevators and rudder. The flight control shutoff OFF lightilluminates and the EICAS advisory message L,C,orRWINGHYDVAL or L,C,orRTAILHYDVAL displays when a flight control valve is closed. If twoor more OFF lights illuminate the EICAS advisory message FLTCONTVALSdisplays.
The pilot controls consist of:•two control columns•two control wheels•two pairs of rudder pedals•control wheel stabilizer trim switches•the speedbrake lever •the flap lever •aileron trim switches•rudder trim switch•alternate stabilizer trim switchesThe columns and wheels are connected through jam override mechanisms. If a jam occurs in a column or wheel, the pilots can maintain control by applying forceto the other column or wheel to overcome the jam. When a restricted portion of the flight controls are bypassed, some control effectiveness may be lost.The rudder pedals are rigidly connected between the two sides.The speedbrake lever allows manual or automatic symmetric actuation of thespoilers.
