A system for backdriving the flight deck controllers of a fly-by-wire aircraft that is under autopilot control to provide a pilot with tactile and visual feedback of autopilot activity. The system, distributed between the aircraft primary flight computers and the autopilot flight computer, uses actuators mechanically coupled to each flight deck controller to position the flight deck controller to mimic manual operation of the flight control surfaces. Additionally, the system allows smooth disengagement of the autopilot and transfer of the aircraft to pil...
[ The embodiments of the invention in which an exclusive property or privilege is claimed are defined as follows:] [1.] An autopilot automatic disconnect system of an aircraft having a fly-by-wire control system, the disconnect system comprising:(a) predicting a position of a flight deck controller;(b) sensing an actual position of the flight deck controller;(c) comparing the predicted position and the actual position of the flight deck controller to determine a difference in the positions;(d) comparing the difference with a predetermined threshold value...
