Well what the heck:

What's the jackscrew dimension at neutral and where do you take the measurement?

And why am I having so much trouble getting students to understand this???

Wow...that quick, Avioniker? Do you breathe this stuff, or was that too easy??  Big thumbs up

- The voltage should be zero if I remember the Land Verify correctly. I believe during the surface tests, it asks you to put the stab to 4 units (neutral) and the reading should be ZERO (with a tolerance of course).

- The jackscrew dimension should be taken from gimble to gimble.

- The dimension is 39.89 ( I cheated on this one, I can't remember stuff like that).

And why are you having so much trouble getting guys to understand that? It is pretty cut and dry. No weird english.

Because I deal with "old" Boeing and MD guys and this is a new experience for them...
...let's see now, I go to the cockpit to check the trim????
...on the MCD...what???
...I ain't never had to push so many ....buttons to find out if (fill in the blank)

Actually they can't believe how easy it's become to troubleshoot and just find information they had to dig for in the past.

I have to live the stuff, I just finished writing a text on the NG flight controls,
That's not cheating, is it?
