In an analogue computer this will be the accuracy with which the analogue circuitry fits the ideal curve and will be subject to component tolerances and thermal drift. In a digital computer it will be the accuracy of the equations used to express the model of Earth’s atmosphere (in itself an approximation). 6 shows a simplified schematic of an aircraft pitch attitude control system in which the flight guidance computer determines and controls the required aircraft pitch attitude. The command signal from the pilot’s inceptor (yoke or side-stick) is compared with the measured pitch attitude, determined via the aircraft inertial reference system, to generate an error signal which, after shaping by the control laws in the flight guidance computer, drives a servo-actuator whose output positions the control linkage to the pitch axis elevator, causing the aircraft to Resolution Intervals Digital Computing Ideal Function Break point Analogue Computing Ideal Function Drift 0 Pressure mb -60 Temp oC Rel.

Digital primary flight control with a mechanical backup has been used on the Airbus A320 family, A330 and A340 using side-stick controllers and on the Boeing B777 using a conventional control yoke. 1 1970 1980 1990 2000 Evolution of electronics in flight and engine control without any mechanical backup but with electrically signalled backup. 2. Early avionics systems can be characterised as distributed analogue computing architectures. In this era, each avionics systems function was a ‘point-solution’ implemented using specific hardwired analogue electronics and relays.

As far as possible, given the constraints of security and commercial sensitivities, there are descriptions of the latest aircraft to enter service, sufficient at least to gain an appreciation of avionic systems. • • • • • • Chapter 7 – Electrical Systems and Installation Chapter 8 – Sensors Chapter 9 – Communications and Navigation Aids Chapter 10 – Flight Control Systems Chapter 11 – Navigation Systems and PBN Chapter ?? – Military Aircraft Adaptations. 3 The Flight Deck The flight deck is an amalgam of avionics technology and human–machine interface in a secure and comfortable environment to allow the flight crew to operate effectively during short haul and very long haul flights.
