Well, seems like you´re all so fascinated by playing with your stick with buttons, that you just oversaw my questions. (Playing with your stick is fun, I know, but it´s even better if you have a girlfriend and besides, then you don´t have to clean it off somewhere
Is it possible for an airliner to land and decelerate without using the brakes in normal ops?
I guess it´s not done if there´s not an emergency for reasons like safety (would it be more dangerous??), noise, engine tear, or whatever.
And about braking in bad weather. KAUSpilot said if there´s some Anti-skid system, there´s no difference to normal weather ops. Well, for one thing, how about if the plane doesn´t have any Anti-skid-system? (Are there still Airliners that do not have such systems?) And I´ve heard of some runway overruns or stuff like that in bad weather such as snow, does that have anything to do with not being able to use the brakes to the full extent?
And on a side note: I´ve always wanted to have such pedals for flight-sim, but they´re so damn expensive (Hey, I´m a student, so I´m always broke
.) Would it be worth all that money?
Thnx for your answers
