Pitch Control :
Control via the Pitch Trim Wheel that moves the THS

Lateral Control :
Is accomplished using the rudder pedals + the 3OO has a
BCM(Backup Control Module) that provides Yaw Damping
and direct rudder command.
This computer has an own GEN which is supplied by B or Y
hydraulics

Dutch Roll Damping is done by the BYDU

FLIGHT CONTROL PROTECTIONS

AT GW ( > 210 T) S - SPEED IS ABOVE VFE CONF 1+F


F - SPEED IS CLOSE TO VFE CONF 2

ARS ( AUTO RETRACT SYSTEM ) DESIGNED FOR TO

TO in CONF 1+F -> IAS reaches 200 KTS -> the ARS retracts FLAPS to CONF 1
The VFE CONF 1+F on the PFD changes to VFE CONF 1 (=255 KTS)

PILOT : JUST CONTINUE THE ACCELERATION AND SELECT THE FLAP LEVER TO ZERO AT S-SPEED.

EWD : NO INDICATION

FLRS (FLAP LOAD RELIEF SYSTEM) DESIGNED FOR ALL FLIGHT PHASES

In CONF 2, 3 and FULL the FLRS automatically retracts flaps to the next position if VFE is exceeded by > 2.5 KTS
SLATS remain in their present position.When speed decreases below VFE by >2.5 KTS, flaps return to the
selected position.

CONF 2 (VFE + 2,5 KTS) -> CONF 1+F IF (VFE - 2,5 KTS) -> BACK TO CONF 2
CONF 3 (VFE + 2,5 KTS) -> CONF 2 IF (VFE - 2,5 KTS) -> BACK TO CONF 3
CONF FULL (> 180 KTS + 2,5 KTS) -> CONF 3 IF(180 - 2,5 KTS) -> BACK TO CONF FULL

EWD : RELIEF

ALPHA LOCK/SPEED FUNCTION

Inhibits SLATS retraction at HIGH ANGLE OF ATTACK and/or LOW SPEED when the flap lever is moved from 1

Occurs about V& PROT
& > 8,5 or speed < 148 kts the movement from the flap lever to ZERO doesnt retract the SLATS.

PILOT : JUST CONTINUE THE ACCELERATION AS FORESEEN
