I’m wondering if any of you more experienced SR20 flyers might have some tips about avoiding nose wheel shimmy during full-stop landings.
In practicing landings, I’ve noticed an occassional (it doesn’t happen every time) tendancy for the the SR20’s nose wheel to shimmy side-to-side almost violently when I slow the plane to a full stop. It hasn’t happened during a touch-and-go, only when I get below 50 knots or so, and it doesn’t stop until I get below about 10 knots. Full back pressure helps only a little and hard or light braking makes no difference. I have nightmarish visions of the nose strut breaking and the prop striking (ugh).
Any tips appreciated. TIA.
