  1. Hi guys I have a CT2k. Sometimes when I deploy flaps, I hear a creaking/knocking sound. It’s just once or twice and not constant. It doesn’t happen on the ground? Is this normal? I was wondering if it is just the airframe and if anybody else has had this ? My other question is that I recently had my pilot side left rudder pedal replaced by my engineer. This has inadvertently resulted in my stick coming back a little bit more and my stabiliser deflecting more. I’ve checked the deflections and they are good. I previously had difficulty getting a pronounced flare but it is much easier now that I can get the stick back further. My question is what has caused this change? My engineer says he didn’t adjust anything on the stabiliser.
  2. Flap settings

    I've been able to manually raise the flaps past the -6 position using the flap switch. There is no indication on the flap viewing screen of any flap position when I do this. Anyone familiar with this? Could this be a -12 position? I don't seem to gain much speed doing this, maybe a knot or two. Any safety issues involved? Thanks for any help...

  4. Flap board clicking

    The flap board in our club's CTLS has started clicking in the center console. Everything still seems to work as it should but the relays click in 0 and 15 degree position. We've replaced this board before and it very expensive. Over $900 if memory serves. I'd really like to avoid that if possible. Has any successfully dealt with this issue? Stuart
