Helmet Cam – Riding a US Navy F/A-18C Hornet

Posted by Michael May 17th, 2012 / No Comments

Enjoy this helmet cam video and ride with US Navy F/A-18C Hornet East Coast Demo pilot Capt. Michael “STAB” Allen as he performs at the Thunder Over Michigan airshow.

The F/A-18 is highly maneuverable, owing to its good thrust to weight ratio, digital fly-by-wire control system, and leading edge extensions (LEX). The LEX allow the Hornet to remain controllable at high angles of attack. Canted vertical stabilizers are another distinguishing design element, one among several other such elements that enable the Hornet’s excellent high angle-of-attack ability include oversized horizontal stabilators, oversized trailing edge flaps that operate as flaperons, large full-length leading edge slats, and flight control computer programming that multiplies the movement of each control surface at low speeds and moves the vertical rudders inboard instead of simply left and right.
