The purpose of the Manoeuvre Load Alleviation (MLA) function is to reduce the loads applied to the outer wing structure during high g manoeuvre. Explain the function's principle.
The function is achieved by 2 ailerons & 3 external spoilers on each wing. These surfaces are deflected upwards on both wings.
