T-45C TS, ADV & IUT EMFP-07
Canopy and Flight Control Emergency Procedures
Flaps Asymmetry (Split Flaps) or Slats Asymmetry (Split Slats)
Since a single actuator controls the flaps in the T-45C, a hydraulic failure can't cause split flaps. The most
probable cause of split flaps would be a mechanical failure in the control rods/bellcranks that control the
flaps. The slats have an independent actuator for each wing, but each slat drive actuator is kept
hydraulically symmetrical by a synchro cable that limits the possibility of split slats.
PRACTICE EXERCISE 4
You have just rolled wings level from the break at NAS Jacksonville. After you select 1/2 flaps, the
aircraft rolls sharply to the right. Immediately, you counter roll and yaw with ________ and
________, set the FLAP/SLATS switch to the ________ position, and perform a ________ check.
Landing should be accomplished as soon as ________.
Flaps/Slats Failing to Extend
Failure of the flaps/slats to extend may be caused by the same difficulties associated with Failure to
Retract. In addition, low HYD-1 pressure can be a cause.
PRACTICE EXERCISE 5
Out of the break at NAS Gulf Coast, you set the FLAP/SLATS switch to DOWN, but the flap position
indicator fails to move from the UP position, and the SLATS caution light illuminates.
In addition, buffeting and wind noise associated with flap/slat extension do not occur. If your
attempt to lower the flaps with the emergency flap switch fails, you should fly ________ ________
and a ________ ________ pattern and prepare for a no flap/slat landing. Your airspeed will be
________ KIAS above the normal full flap/slat approach speed.
