View Full Version : A320 differential spoilers?

30th Sep 2007, 14:43
Cant find this one in the FCOM. Does the A320 have differential spoilers? The middle 3 spoilers (from 5 on each wing) are speed brakes, and the outer 4 are roll spoilers, so what happens when we turn the a/c with speed brakes extended? Do the spoilers on the down going wing extend further, with the up going wing spoilers remaining extended? Any clues appreciated.

the Roll command have priority on the Speed brake usage...

say you are descending and using speed brake...and also want to turn ...what will happen is that the up going wing speed brake deflection will reduce to while the down going wing speed brake deflection will remain the same to initiate the turn.

i have read it some where in the FCOM's ...i will look for it and come back later.
