"The bulletin reinforces existing procedures which all Air Canada crews are now trained on", Fitzpatrick said. A preliminary report is expected at the end of the month.
This measures at what angle an aircraft is flying and air is passing over the wings.

Pilots can counteract this for up to 10 seconds at a time by pushing a switch on the airplane's controls. In addition, a system known as elevator trim can be changed to prompt nose-up or nose-down movement. In the early days of the jet age, the elevator trim system was linked to several accidents.
He said the pilot had landed the plane safely on that occasion.
