Thanks HAL - for the benefit of us without your obvious high degree of technical knowledge, what is alpha control?
|Quoting Captoveur (Reply 14):|
Correct me if I am wrong but isn't that angle of attack control?
|Quoting B744F (Reply 3):|
Hydraulics may fail, but computer systems are always error free! That is an accident waiting to happen unfortunately if you can't control the bird by hand
|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 18):|
BTW why HAL......reminds me of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited BLR.

That guy was telling you stories. There's a lot more functions to that ENG MASTER switch than just fuel s/o.

On the newer 'busses two horizontal magenta lines appear equidistantly (I think 15 knots either side) from the speed bug during descent. From what I have been observing I think that these are the limits between which no power changes are made by the autothrust to correct the profile. Instead corrections are made by pitching. Am I correct?
|Quoting HAL (Reply 8):|
they make us go through that scenario during training. It's a pain in the a$$ to control, but it can be done.
