Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: Pilot reports he has experienced seven incidents of rudder stiffness on landing and prior to departure taxi-out; followed by an EICAS Rudder 1-2 Inop; Manual Reversion message and Master Caution annunciation on EMB-145 aircraft. Concerns raised that slowness in rudder response in Manual Reversion could affect controllability with an engine loss or uncommanded nose steering excursion on landing.
