Dornier 328 Spoilers

Sun Apr 20, 2003 12:51 pm

I was looking at some pics of the 328 cockpit, and the thrust levers. I noticed there was no spoiler arm around. You have parking brakes, flaps, and GND Spoliers (a little button on the Jets, only) Where are they at? Unless, they don't have spoilers?? Thank you.

Perhaps they are the same as the Dash8, where the spoilers act as roll spoilers or ground spoilers, but not inflight spoilers for increasing descent rates. In this case a lever is not necessary.

I fly the Dornier 328 and those spoilers are only ground spoilers!
Some Dorniers have them some don´t. And you arm them with the little butten on the central pedestral next to the rudder unlimited swith.
But those ground spoilers are not the roll spoilers. They are independent.
yes i can handle that alone. - - -famous last words

Yes I know that they made a dvd about air alps. I will organize it the next days, because I haven´t seen it yet.
Why do you know about this dvd??
