    If you are talking about moving the flap handle and the flaps move to the selected position using electric power, I don't know of any modern "Airliners" (defined multi engined, turbine powered and built to part 121 standards) using an electric drive as the primary motive force.

    That said, I don't know everything and I'm ready to learn.

      Don,


      That's what I was telling Gabriel. I don't think modern Airliners have flaps operated solely by electric power.

        I do. Intimately.

          That's not entirely accurate.

            He's going to tell us a Beech 18 is an airliner.

            One of these days Flyboy will actually communicate a complete thought that enlightens the rest of us. I predict it will happen, not in my life time, but it will happen. He is much younger than I.

              Logic Exercise:

              Given:
              -People on "power trips" don't want to give up power
              -Knowledge is power.

              Therefore:
              -People on "power trips" don't share knowledge well.
              Les règles de l'aviation de base découragent de longues périodes de dur tirer vers le haut.
