Speed Brake Panel

API Documentation: Speed Brake Panel



  • The speed brake surfaces can be controlled with the SPEED BRAKE lever.
  • To set speedbrake surfaces to a required position, the lever has to be pushed down and set to the required position.
  • A detent is provided at "½" SPEED BRAKE position.
  • The ground spoilers can be armed via the SPEED BRAKE lever. The lever must be pulled up when in the RET position to achieve this.
  • When the lever is armed (or reverse thrust is selected), all spoiler's surfaces will automatically extend at landing, or in case of a rejected takeoff.
