21349RE: Light-Sport Aircraft Yahoo group RE: A starting point
- Oct 17, 2013Cy,
is what I learned in commercial aviation when I designed the software to perform
a 'yaw damper' action.
It has nothing to do with turn coordination and/or 'stepping on the ball'.
Any use of the term 'dutch roll' as a training activity of stepping on the
rudder and/or activating the ailerons is a misnomer.
