Which of these statements about an anti-skid system are correct or incorrect?

1. In case of failure of an anti-skid system the auto-brake system takes over the regulation of the slip ratio.
2. Careful brake application by the pilot in case of anti-skid failure can never achieve the same performance as a properly functioning anti-skid system.

  • A
    1 is incorrect, 2 is correct.
  • B
    1 is correct, 2 is incorrect.
  • C
    Both 1 and 2 are correct.
  • D
    Both 1 and 2 are incorrect.

Statement 1: In case of failure of an anti-skid system the auto-brake system takes over the regulation of the slip ratio.
This is incorrect, if the anti-skid function is inoperative the auto-brake will not work.

Statement 2: Careful brake application by the pilot in case of anti-skid failure can never achieve the same performance as a properly functioning anti-skid system.
Correct, a pilot will never reach the same performance as a properly functioning anti-skid system. The anti-skid system senses when a brake starts to skid and will reduce braking pressure to avoid the wheels from skidding, a pilot won’t come close to the same performance.
