The Thales Fly-by-Wire (FBW) solution consists of two digital flight control computers and one backup flight control unit, using the latest-generation quad-dual flight control computer and modular packing. This electronic system, which is the core of an aircraft’s FBW systems, controls the primary and secondary flight surfaces of the aircraft .It ensures superior performance, which translates into better handling qualities, improved comfort for passengers, enhanced safety, weight and volume optimization, and on exceptional dispatch rate. Thales’s solution will interface with active sidesticks thus rendering flight controls more pilot-friendly.
