De Havilland Otter...........Flaps

Recommended Posts

hi allDoes anyone know if the ailerons droop when the flaps are extended on the DHC-3 Otter? They do on the Beaver (18 degrees with full flap) and I guess it might be logical to assume that they do on the Otter but does anyone know for sure?; and if so by how much?Thanks,Roger

Not sure by how much but I do recall that they droop. Era Aviation out of Kenai flew them alot and I believe they still have them in their fleet, but it's been almost 8 years since I flew with Era (flew them when I left Alaska, haven't been on it since. :-hah)----------------------------------------------------------------John MorganReal World: KGEG, UND Aerospace Spokane Satillite, Private ASEL 141.2 hrs, 314 landings, 46 inst. apprs.Virtual: MSFS 2004"There is a feeling about an airport that no other piece of ground can have.

OK I'll use the same figures as for the Beaver. The droop can't be too much else otherwise use of aileron with full flap would invoke control problems such as an instant stall of the outboard wing or extremely high adverse yaw. :-eekThanks for replying. Roger
