Re: Mriya/Ruslan landing checklist

Not jargon, they are reading the landing checklist. Checkpoint: "KshRV, KshRN" Response: "Landing". KshRV is the "gear ratio" of the elevator, i.e. how much the yoke should be moved to achieve a certain degree of the elevator. KshRN is the same coefficient for the rudd...

Yes, You'd hear on ATIS "visibility 10 kilometers or more". At least in Poland but I guess all Europe has it similar. Which, indeed, means also that you don't need any RVR.

You lose half the stabilizer force available, so you either fly about 1.5 times faster, or use much bigger deflections of the remaining surface. Or a mixture of both, all to keep the stabilizer force on needed level. Of course all assuming that no other damages occurred, in particular that control s...
