Left/Right Elevator Failure
This is a work in progress
The indicated elevator flight control surface is inoperative. The REUs and/or hydraulic actuators or EBHAs on the indicated elevator are inoperative resulting in a damped bypass (float) or jammed position.
A loss of elevator will result in reduced longitudinal (pitch) control effectiveness and degraded lateral-directional (roll-yaw) control effectiveness.
- Steep Approach: Unavailable.
- Autopilot . . . OFF
- Airspeed . . . 285 KCAS / 0.90M maximum
- PITCH TRIM . . . Use (as required)
- Airplane . . . Land as soon as practicable
- Landing Controllability Check . . . Perform
- Flare . . . Minimize
Refer to 03-13-10, Landing Controllability Check
a. Runway . . . Select runway based on minimum crosswind (less than 10 knots)
Use a landing distance based on VREF +10 KCAS landing speed to touchdown increased by 1.25 factor to account for the a shallow approach.
Wheel fuse plug release may occur due to added landing speed under combinations of high field elevation, landing weight and OAT.
b. Landing Distance . . . Recalculate with a 1.25 factor
c. Landing . . . Use shallow approach angle
Pitch trim should be used for additional pitch control authority when necessary.
d. Airspeed . . . VREF+ 10 KCAS minimum
