Re: Atlas Air 3591 Down in Trinity Bay, Texas

Figured I'd throw this out there...(it's been several years since my 767 ground school) From where does the autopilot get its airspeed information?

Yep - the 767, as mentioned earlier, uses an ADP (air driven hydraulic pump) to augment the engine-driven pumps during periods of high demand on the system, such as gear retraction and flap operation.
