Jon Matcho Posted November 4, 2014 Share Posted November 4, 2014 From the full narrative in the NTSB report on the John Denver crash, I noticed this: Concerning the yaw flight controls, the representative from Scaled Composite, Inc. reported that the rudders move and serve as vertical spoilers. In addition to the speed brake and slipping the aircraft, apparently extending both rudders would be another device to reduce landing speeds in EZ types. However, I haven't heard much about this practice and wonder whether it's a viable and safe approach to slowing the aircraft on landing.
