A system for emergency aircraft control uses at least one engine and lateral fuel transfer that allows a pilot to regain control over an aircraft under emergency conditions. Where aircraft propulsion is available only through engines on one side of the aircraft, lateral fuel transfer provides means by which the center of gravity of the aircraft can be moved over to the wing associated with the operating engine, thus inducing a moment that balances the moment from the remaining engine, allowing the pilot to regain control over the aircraft. By implementin...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A navigational control for an aircraft having an engine and the ability to laterally transfer fuel between fuel tanks, comprising:a thrust control, said thrust control controlling thrust of the engine;a lateral fuel transfer control, said lateral fuel transfer control controlling lateral transfer of fuel between said fuel tanks to control and shift a center of gravity of the aircraft; anda coordinator, said coordinator coupled to said thrust control and said lateral fuel transfer control, said coordinator coordinating said thr...
