- Total Time
I was on an A340 and during taxi, etc, the ailerons were fully deflected. During the takeoff roll ditto. I'm watching and wondering if we are going to do an unannounced roll on departure. I dismiss this idea as we are loaded for about an 8 hour flight and say goodbye to my wife, etc. The instant the aircraft started to rotate however they "snapped" into a neutral position. While being gratefull that they did I was still curious as to the why of it all and if it was computer or pilot controlled. By the way and the speed at which they moved I would guess computer.
