Swerving Embraer 145 On Take Off

Wed Nov 22, 2000 6:19 am

I recently had two flights on the new Embraer 145. On both take off runs the aircraft swerved from side to side as though the pilot was overcorrecting (or drunk!). I mentioned it to a colleauge who had a similar experience a day earlier. Have Embraer got the U/C geometry wrong? Any ideas?

I can assure you an aircraft would not get its certificate if it had a problem with the U/C geometry. The crew were probably correcting for a crosswind, or checking the rudder.
