Air Brake control

The air brakes are variable and can be stopped at any position. The position is indicated on the cockpit trim indicator.

They open and close at a fixed rate - we need to get this rate from videos.

The momentary double throw switch on the throttles just commands them to open or closed direction, ie: you have to hold the switch against a spring to keep them moving in either direction.

For keyboard users this could be done with holding a letter to open, and shift & the same letter to close?

I've got to find a suitable switch to modify my switch box to fulfill this operation.

I read that landing is done with 1/2 open air brakes, but will confirm this as it may be different under different circumstances.

They are hydraulic, so won't be able to move until engines are running and hydraulic pressure is established.

Cheers, Scott.
