Fly-by-wire controls set for electric flight

BAE Systems is working to define and develop the flight control systems for the future.


Flight controls are the components beneath an aircraft’s surface that make it fly. Early flight controls were mechanical and used cables and pulleys to connect the pilot’s yoke and pedals to the aircraft’s controls surfaces. Today, most modern aircraft operate with fly-by-wire controls, which are electronic systems that are lighter and can help save on fuel.

BAE Systems, a trusted provider of commercial aircraft solutions, produces and develops highly reliable, adaptable, and scalable avionics solutions for the leading manufacturers of commercial aircrafts.
