Recommended Posts

In the Belsimtek manual that there is no mention of using disenagge NWS(when to).

 

On some websites such as f-16.net, they mentioned the practice of disengaging NWS when above 80knots; and we see this similar practice with the A-10C guide.

There is no mention of it however in the F-15 manual; or any web or book references I could find on the standard practice in the Eagle..

 

Does anyone know what the std practice is of Dis' NWS in the F-15C for takeoff/landing is.

you turn off NWS when the rudders have enough authority to correct movement.. Not sure what speed that would be in the f15

For the WIN

If your desired effect on the target is making the pilot defecate his pants laughing then you can definitely achieve it with a launch like that.

It is my understanding that nosewheel steering is on anytime the aircraft is active on the ground.

 

"The nosewheel steering is continuous and has two modes. Normal

steering is automatic and is available anytime the aircraft is running. To

obtain more sensitive steering, you must hold the nosewheel steering

button on the stick. Both modes work well and give the pilot the stability of

dampened steering for long straight taxiways and sensitive steering for tight

turns."

Correct; though there's seems to be lack of information around on of the use of NWS procedures/employment on T/O, Landing.

Yes. Even the official Air Force manual doesn't say much.

 

At least what I gathered from it is that the nosewheel steering is automatically engaged once the gear strut is compressed (so that would happen on landing within direct input from the pilot).

And before taxi, the NSW has to be "CHECKED".
