the deck recess by the cam-end disc and the cam-end
forward stop (fig. 3-35).
Adjustment of the wire support spring height is
made at its aft end. The aft end of the wire support is
also pinned, and set between adjustable forward stops
as required (fig. 3-35).
Wire supports are replaced when they become
deformed or damaged or when they fail to maintain the
required crossdeck pendant height of 2 inches
minimum and 5 1/2 inches maximum as measured
using a cable height gauge (fig. 3-34).
What is considered the heart of the arresting
What permits the return of hydraulic fluid
from the accumulator to the main engine
What is the capacity of the fluid stowage
What is the pitch diameter of the sheaves on
the outboard shaft of the crosshead
What system transfers energy from an
arresting aircraft to the arresting engine?
What reduces peak cable tension?
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Describe the
equipment. Describe the operation of the
emergency recovery equipment.
The emergency recovery equipment (barricade
installation) is used when an aircraft cannot make a
normal (pendant) arrestment. Emergency recovery
equipment consists of the following:
Barricade power package
Pendant and anchor installation
Barricade stanchions and controls
Barricade webbing assembly
Deck ramp installation
arrestments are identical to those used for deck pendant
PIVOT END BASE
FORWARD ADJUSTING SCREW
TO LOWER SPRING
TO RAISE SPRING
