Triple Yaw Damper Ind.
Type No. 5434-A-2
Ref. No. V.A.A.S.202(ET)
Ser. No. 039/65
Rig Use Only.
Yaw dampers are fitted to each section of the rudder, and it is possible to operate them without engaging either of the autopilots. Under autopilot control, the yaw damper on the bottom section of
rudder is controlled by one autopilot, and that on the middle section by the other autopilot, the other two sections in either case being slaved to the master. The third yaw damper is not associated with an autopilot; it is provided mainly as a standby.
The Triple Yaw Damper Indicator comprises three meters each providing the pilot with an indication of surface activity due to its associated damper. A preflight test facility is incorporated in the Indicator Unit.
