Canadair Regional Jet


The flight spoilers provides the aircraft with lift dumping and speed control as commanded from the spoiler control lever in the flight compartment.
The ground spoilers only deploy on the ground as part of the ground lift dumping function to slow the aircraft during landing. The spoilerons and flight spoilers also deploy on the ground
to assist in the ground lift dumping function.
This unit is a model of the control computer called the Spoilers Electronic Control Unit.

The primary flight controls on the Canadair Regional Jet are the ailerons, elevators, and rudder. The primary flight surfaces are hydraulically actuated from flight crew inputs on a dual network of cables, pulleys, and pushpull rods, which operate hydraulic power control units (PCU).

Artificial control loading (tactile feedback) is provided at the control columns, control wheels, and rudder pedals.

The secondary flight controls consist of the horizontal stabilizer, inboard and outboard flaps, flight spoilers, ground spoilers, and various trim systems. Spoilerons operate with the ailerons to provide roll assistance.
