Flying controls of Cessna 152

Hi flyers,

So I'm sure you gained enough knowledge about the Air Frame of the Cessna 152. Now its time to see the flying controls, which are very simple. Cessna 152 is basically used as a flying training airplane because it incorporates all the essential flying tools and is also small.

Dual controls are available as optional equipment on the Cessna 152 and almost all 152s have this option fitted.

The Cessna 152 is equipped with differential ailerons that move through 20 degrees upwards and 15 degrees downwards. It has modified Fowler (slotted, aft-traveling) flaps which are electrically operated and deploy to a maximum of 30 degrees. The rudder can move 23 degrees to either side and is fitted with a ground adjustable trim tab. The elevator move up through 25 degrees and down through 18 degrees. An adjustable trim tab is fitted to the righthand elevator and is controlled by a small wheel in the centre of the control console. The trim tab moves 10 degrees up and 20 degrees down relative to the elevator chord line.
