Author(s): Akhil S J, Nivin Francis

Abstract: Flight control systems are essential for vehicles such as aircraft, helicopters, satellites, launch vehicles, missiles, etc. Electronic and mechanical equipment that allows an aircraft to be controlled with exceptional accuracy and reliability is mean by the control system. A control system includes hydraulic, mechanical and electrical actuators, cockpit controls, sensors, and computer. Fly by wire system are purely electrically controlled control system. Where controls used are computer programmed, the computer system is interposed between the operator and surfaces or final control actuators. This paper will focus primarily on the design and operation of a flight control systems using fly by wire flight control system.
