French term or phrase: application de pas
In a document relating to anomalies in helicopter control: A l’enclenchement du Pilote Automatique (AP 1 & AP 2) :
- pas de message au CAD ;
- durcissement progressif mais rapide des palonniers
- réapparition des défauts ayant suscité l’échange de l’actuator trim (palonniers durs et mauvaise tenue du cap sur application de pas).

Thanks very much!
