  • As a private pilot I have zero knowledge about how big jets are being flown so I was a little surprised to see that smaller Airbuses (A32x) only use spoilers for roll control on final approach. During the initial phase of the approach ailerons are being used but at a certain point they stay put in the neutral position and roll is controlled by the spoilers. When I mentioned this to the pilot... how the spoilers are used on approach, and if so, why?

  • On airliners, are spoilers used in any part of flight other than landing?
