Aerospace – Rudder and Brake Pedal unit General Requirements for Fly by Wire Transport and Business Aircraft
This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides general requirements for a generic rudder and brakes pedal unit that could be used for Fly by Wire transport and business aircraft. It addresses the following:
• The functions to be implemented
• The geometric and mechanical characteristics
• The mechanical and electrical interfaces
• The safety and certification requirements
Rationale: More and more commercial transport and business aircraft are using fly by wire systems controlled with a rudder and brake pedal unit. This ARP is intended to serve the need to have general requirements available for a with a rudder and brake pedal unit, i.e. as a stand alone unit different than the previous mecanism and sub assembly, that are applicable to these aircrafts.
