Revision as of 15:49, 28 June 2011

This document is a work in progress. We aim to produce a concise guide to flying the Eurofighter Typhoon and operating its systems. Keep checking back - as things are added to the aircraft, so they'll be documented here - we hope to make these updates in a timely manner, ideally when new versions of the aircraft are released.

Introduction

The Eurofighter Typhoon is an agile, multirole combat aircraft designed upon relaxed stability principles.

See Eurofighter Typhoon: Development Documentation

Flight Controls

The aircraft is controlled via stick, throttle and rudder pedals, whose motions are processed by the Flight Control System and appropriate signals are passed to the flight control surfaces, the canards, flaperons and rudder.

Flight Control System

The FCS can be bypassed, but this is not recommended under normal flight conditions.

Avionics

Navigation

Nav Aids

Navigational assistance is provided by the Navigation Computer, guiding the pilot along a heading, route or beam using information from the two primary navigation systems, Route Manager and TACAN. Relevant information is displayed on the Head Up Display
