The BAC-111 cockpit includes a stick shaker/pusher following its 1963 crash

A stick shaker is a mechanical device to rapidly and noisily vibrate the control yoke (the "stick") of an aircraft to warn the pilot of an imminent stall. A stick shaker is connected to the control column of most civil jet aircraft and large military aircraft.

The stick shaker is a component of the aircraft's stall protection system, which is composed of fuselage or wing-mounted angle of attack (AOA) sensors that are connected to an avionics computer. The computer receives input from the AOA sensors and a variety of other flight systems. When the data indicate an imminent stall, the computer actuates both the stick shaker and an auditory alert.

The shaker itself is composed of an electric motor connected to a deliberately unbalanced flywheel. When actuated, the shaker induces a forceful, noisy, and entirely unmistakable shaking of the control yoke. This shaking of the control yoke matches the frequency and amplitude of the stick shaking that occurs due to airflow separation in low-speed aircraft as they approach the stall. The stick shaking is intended to act as a backup to the auditory stall alert, in cases where the flight crew may be distracted.

In a 1963 BAC-111 stall test, the disturbed air from the stalled wing rendered the elevator ineffective and the prototype crashed, imposing a stick shaker/pusher combination, since fitted to airliners and business jets with similar deep stalls, mostly T-tailed.[1]

Stall protection systems include the stick pusher system to automatically push forward on the control, thus reducing the aircraft's angle of attack and preventing the stall. Both systems have to be tested and armed before takeoff and remain armed during flight.

The vibration of the stick shaker is often heard on black box recordings of aircraft that entered a stall condition prior to a crash.

Following the crash of American Airlines Flight 191 on May 25, 1979, the FAA issued an airworthiness directive making stick shakers mandatory for both sets of flight controls on DC-10, -10F, -30, -30F and -40 series aircraft.[2]

  • ✪ AIRBUS SIDE STICK - Explained by CAPTAIN Joe
  • ✪ Stick shaker stall warning Boeing 737 MPS Flight simulator
  • ✪ B737 PFD Stick Shaker Activation Indications


dear friends and Followers welcome back to my channel and greetings from the Airbus A320 simulator at the TFC flight Training Centre here in Essen, Germany Today's video will all be about the Airbus sidestick, so let's get started First and most importantly don't ever call it a joystick it is a flight control stick at the side of each pilot so a side stick the two side sticks allow the Pilots to control the aircraft manually both in pitch and roll. They are not linked mechanically, but simultaneously Inputs by the Captain and the first officer are summed up; not many people actually know that. The sum is limited by the maximum deflection by a Single side stick and dual inputs will cause both green side stick Priority lights to flash up and a continuous oral warning "DUAL INPUT" will sound. It is very important for both pilots to be clear about who has control of the aircraft because There is no direct Feedback or artificial field system like in your playstation Joystick or similar sort. Except for a simple spring centering device which will neutralize The side stick when it is released. On ground after the first engine is running the side stick position Indicators come into view on the PFD the White Corner indicates the limit of side stick travel while the white cross Indicates the actual side stick; this is pretty useful for checking full side stick movement before takeoff But it doesn't indicate the actual control Surface position therefore you would have have to go to the Ecam flight control page to check for the surface position of the given input The side stick has two switches: a dual function autopilot Disconnection switch, which can also be used as a priority take-over push-button and it is laid out that your thumb rests comfortably on it. At the forward part of the side stick as a Communications push-to-talk switch to be used with your index finger. Whenever you engage the autopilot a solenoid operated detent locks the side stick in a neutral position which can be heard and felt by a distinctive click if Necessary the detent can be overridden with sufficient pressure to unlock the side stick which will also Disconnect the autopilot. I wouldn't recommend that because you would immediately Get the plane into an excessive roll or pitch rate. The normal method is to disconnect the autopilot By pressing the autopilot disconnect push button and then you will get a confirmation that the autopilot is disconnected by a triple cavalry sound. A pilot can take full control and deactivate the other side stick by pressing and holding his priority take over push button. If It's held for at least 40 seconds the other side stick is then the active And each time a side stick priority is taken an audio message ""PRIORITY RIGHT/PRIORITY LEFT" is heard. In addition The side stick priority light on the glare shield comes active a red arrow in front of the pilot Indicates that his side stick has now been deactivated and the other pilot is in control. Now you might ask "why is there such a function in the first place?" Primarily if one of the side sticks has a failure like not returning back into its neutral position keeping the plane in a constant roll or pitch attitude and therefore a green light either captain or first officer is displayed in front of the pilot who has control. I hope you enjoyed this basic introduction video of the Airbus sidestick and make sure to watch the upcoming videos on the A320 system Knowledge Thanks a lot for the support by TFC providing me with this amazing flight simulator Make sure to check out their website for more details about their flight school programs and see you later next week. All the best, your Captain Joe! :)
