abort drill


abort drill
A prebriefed and rehearsed sequence of actions to be taken instinctively to cope with emergency abort situations. For example, normally, the abort takeoff drill is to bring back fully the throttle(s), apply full brakes, deploy the tail chute (for those aircraft where this facility is available), and use reverse thrust on all engines consistent with the ability to steer along the runway.
