There is provided a controller for aiding a pilot to control an airplane\s track over the ground. While the airplane is in the air, a lateral control subsystem is provided for automatically holding the aircraft aligned with a desired track angle. Control is initiated when the pilot places the airplane in a wings level condition and centers his roll axis controller (e.g., wheel or stick). An in-air track rate control subsystem is also provided. While the airplane is on the ground, a directional control subsystem is provided which enables the pilot to comm...
A control system for an aircraft, the control system comprising: a. roll input means, (i) which are movable by a pilot of the aircraft, for generating a first command signal which is a function of an input made by the pilot to the roll input means so as to control a roll angle of the aircraft and (ii) which are movable in a manner that when the roll input means are in a neutral position there is no rolling moment applied to the aircraft in response to the first command signal; b. means for generating a second command signal, as a function of a selected n...
