I would agree, however it stayed at this deflection from the time I boarded the aircraft, till just before he rotated on takeoff.
|Quoting FredT (Reply 6):|
Would be hard to design free-floating tabbed ailerons though, due to upfloat of the ailerons due to pressure differences caused by the wing generating lift.
|Quoting VC10 (Reply 8):|
It was not unheard of that other aircraft aircrew would warn the Brit crews that they had both ailerons hanging down
|Quoting EstorilM (Reply 11):|
That's interesting about the crosswind correction, and makes sense. I suppose it was just a coincidence that I missed the flight control check and the ailerons remained in the same position before/after the check as well.

Are you sure you didn't confuse this flight with one where you were on a DC-9 / MD80?
|Quoting EstorilM (Thread starter):|
I'm starting to get a little nervous, as the aileron on my wing is in the MAX down deflection still! At this point we're cleared onto the active and he positions and holds. I'm doing that nervous "first time passenger" type thing where I look around to see if anyone else notices, with eyes probably bulging out of my face..

Was there a winglet on the wing tips....If not it probably was a DC9/MD80 series.
|Quoting Dw747400 (Reply 1):|
Sounds like crosswind correction. Common on smaller aircraft, though I'm not sure of the procedure on the CRJ200.
