View Full Version : A320 Question for Roberto

Gooday Roberto........a couple of questions if you could help out. The flap and speed brake levers : do they pull up or push down to operate ?
And the trim wheel, does it rotate while flying as it is on auto trim. Which means I need to use a servo !! if that is so.

Regards Brian W.

Hey Brian,

The Flap lever you Pull it up, if you notice the flap handle has like two heads well the one in the middle you pull it up and move the lever to the desire position it is not so hard to move I once told Matt that the force was like lifting 3 Square CD cases with 2 fingers it is hard to explain but is something like that. The Speedbrake Lever just pushing back the handle it wont move to operate the speedbrakes, you have to first push down and then push it back!! Remember on the A-320 with autopilot on speedbrakes only depliy 50% if you wish full deployment you have to disconnect the AP that is for the A-320 only! Yupe the autotrim wheel rotates on flight it is not noisy so you barelly notice it but is in continuous move!!
