Aero-News: Quote Of The Day (06.13.10)

"The system is transparent to the pilot... It is like landing with the brake pedals pushed forward. Pilots activate the autobrake function during approach by engaging a button located near the landing gear controls. Braking begins as soon as the main landing gear touches down while the nose gear is still off the ground, which is 1 to 1.2 seconds earlier than with the normal procedure. As soon as the pilot pushes the pedals on the ground, the autobrake disengages and the pilot brakes normally. Passengers will feel the same deceleration (0.4g) as in a conventional high performance landing."
