Which ABS will the MD-11 support

Recommended Posts

Hi PMDG,I saw in the Boeing FCOM (Vol III), the MD-11 is equipped with one of two different ABS-Systems. The "High Deceleration Rate" ABS or the "Standard Deceleration Rate" ABS.Underneath state the FCOM which airlines use the high and the standard ABS. The most use the high decel version, but 11 airlines use the standard one.I asked myself what will PMDG simulate?Marc

Can you confirm that you are referring to an Auto Brake System and not an Anti-lock Brake System? Wouldn't an anti-lock braking system be the equivalent to the "Anti-skid" feature on many airliners?J-
