Re: Does the ailerons on the Airbus A220 droop because it is a fly-by wire aircraft?

Lots of wrong info but in the right direction. First thing is some planes droop ailerons when flaps are extended. While on some airliners with FBW the ailerons do droop, many airplanes have ailerons that droop with flap extension that do not have fly by wire. The list is to long to type but one we ...

Re: Does the ailerons on the Airbus A220 droop because it is a fly-by wire aircraft?

The ailerons droop when the flaps are deployed as a method of increasing lift. Part of the FBW system. The elevators droop (actually positioned deliberately nose down) during the takeoff roll as the aircraft is inherently tail heavy. This increases nose wheel steering effectiveness during the takeoff.

Probably quicker to back taxi to full length than to wait to figure out new takeoff data and to load new performance numbers for an intersection departure.
