Thrust Reversers

The purpose of the thrust reverser system is to provide a reverser thrust brake force for aircraft deceleration after the aircraft has touched down during landing. The system is a two-position one, with hydraulically actuated translating sleeves, mechanically moved blocker doors and static cascades. The thrust reverser system has four primary parts: the C-ducts, the translating sleeves, the blocker doors and the cascade vanes.
