Thanks for the reply. I agree with your basic answer - although I would not go so far as to say "any aircraft" .

I presume you are AB330 qualified therefore, second question:

The BEA release (which I have now read) seems to indicate that the position of the THS was +13 deg. (nose up).

Question: On the AB330, what is the maximum nose up deflection of the THS? Might it be +13 deg or anything close to that?
