AF447 Transcript

David Learmount’s article today reveals two key weaknesses: one in the crew and the other in the aircraft.

The crew had not clearly declared who was flying the aircraft – in airline lingo who was PF and who was PNF.

Airbus sidesticks add algebraically. When the aircraft hit the water the left sidestick had some nose-down input and the right sidestick was at full nose-up. The Trimmable Horizonal Stabilizer (the horizontal tail) was already at full nose-up, most likely because of continuous nose-up sidestick applied while in Alternate Law.

  1. Just about all of what you assert is supprisingly accurate and it makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This particular article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes.
