Pilatus PC-24 front wheel cover

Recommended Posts

Hi

Why on the PC-24 you only see a small cover behind the front wheel and not two panel on side before the wheel? Never seen such on a plane and need

that data for modeling. How is the front landing gear covered?

Thanks

The flap begind the nose gear is a mechanically linked follow up door. The doors that house the rest of the nose gear are probably hydraulically operated, they open when gear is selected to retract, and close when gear is up and locked. Gulfstream IV and V use similar arrangement, just much larger. Sorry I don't have a photo at the moment.

Yes the two long flaps are only on illustrations but not on the real thing. So I should do flaps that are closed in either positions, only sliding when operating the gear. Ok I'll do that, thanks.
