  1. To determine whether or not any slippage occurs
  2. The elevators
  3. - Align and lock flight control wheels in neutral
    - Align and lock all bell-cranks, quadrants, sectors, etc. in neutral
    - Verify that control surfaces are in neutral position
    - Tension cables using turnbuckles
    - Verify control surface range
    - Operate controls and listen for strange noises
    - Re-check tensions and lock turnbarrels
    - Perform dual inspection
  4. Phenolic material
  5. - Tag and identify disconnected control cables
    - Work in a controlled environment
    - Check that f/c areas are clear of all obstructions
    - Make sure tools are properly calibrated
    - Make sure tools are put away before signing off
  6. A live stabilizer
  7. In the appropriate airframe maintenance manual or type certificate data sheet
  8. It senses airspeed and changes f/c deflection limits according to speed
  9. An aileron-spoiler interconnect
  10. To prevent adverse yaw by deflecting the rudder when the a/c is rolled
  11. No
  12. - Set f/c to neutral position and align trim tab to trailing edge
    - Center chains on sprockets
    - Zero protractor
    - Measure full travel
    - Compare results with manual
  13. It prevents the cable from falling of the pulley
  14. 7x7 or 7x19
  15. Flap actuation must by symmetrical
  16. - Electric
    - Hydraulic
    - Mechanical/manual
  17. Nose down
  18. It prevents pressure leakage through the pressure bulkhead in pressurized a/c
  19. It uses a jackscrew to adjust the angle of attack of the stabilizer leading edge
  20. That the tensiometer is at least 6" away from any swaged terminals
  21. In the appropriate airframe maintenance manual or type certificate data sheet
  22. Anti-servo tabs are used on stabilators and move in the same direction as the f/c surface (to counteract aerodynamic force on the stabilator leading edge)
  23. Nose up
  24. - Cable
    - Push/pull rods
    - Teleflex
    - Jackscrews
    - Hydraulic
    - Electric
  25. To a nose-down position
  26. They provide greater pitch stability at low speeds
  27. To prevent servo tab operated flight controls from going all willy-nilly while it's parked on the ground
  28. Because they are more susceptible to cracking
  29. Put a slight bend in the cable
  30. - Fasteners double locked
    - Cable runs straight and is not crossed
    - Adjustable rods within tolerance and safetied
    - Check backlash
    - Check for worn pulleys or pulley bearings
  31. Yes
  32. To maintain constant tension on f/c cables through a variety of temperatures
  33. An aileron-flap interconnect
  34. After painting
  35. - Correct assembly
    - Correct safetying
    - Proper sense of operation
  36. - Degrees
    - Inches
  37. On the inner strands
  38. Stainless steel or carbon steel (mostly stainless steel though)
  39. - Synchronize dual cockpit controls to each other
    - Synchronize cockpit controls to f/c surfaces
    - Set correct range of f/c travel
    - Tension cables
  40. Fairleads
  41. - Symmetry
    - Wing angle of incidence
    - Wash in/wash out
    - Wing dihedral
  42. Stabilators create less drag since they don't have to deflect as far to have the same effect
  43. On the f/c leading edge
  44. The lower end (when the aircraft is moved to a warmer temperature, the fuselage will expand at almost twice the rate of the cables, thus tightening the cables)
  45. The airframe stops
