The flight director is related to the autopilot system. It displays a guide on the artificial horizon, which shows the attitude of the airplane, but does nothing to control the plane. The guide represents a reference of an airplane attitude that will follow the parameters set for the autopilot. The pilot can manually fly the plane directly where the flight director indicates, and by doing so the plane will follow the parameters set for the autopilot. If the autopilot is engaged, autopilot flies the plane to follow the flight director. The flight director serves as a visual indication of where.

An autopilot is a system used to control the trajectory of an aircraft, marine craft or spacecraft without constant manual control by a human operator being required. Autopilots do not replace human operators, but instead they assist them in controlling the vehicle. This allows them to focus on broader aspects of operations such as monitoring the trajectory, weather and systems.

The aircraft remains in normal law and the autopilots are operational. x DIRECT LAW x It is possible for the flight control system to degrade from NORMAL law straight to DIRECT law (. dual radar altimeter failure).

LAW: A predetermined set of rules which govern flight characteristics. The aircraft remains in normal law and the autopilots are operational. The primary reason that DIRECT law is reached is because the aircraft is in ALTERNATE law and the landing gear is lowered in preparation for landing.

Essentially, a flight director system is an autopilot system without the servos. All of the same sensing and computations are made, but the pilot controls the airplane and makes maneuvers by following the commands displayed on the instrument panel. Flight director systems can be part of an autopilot system or exist on aircraft that do not possess full autopilot systems. Many autopilot systems allow for the option of engaging or disengaging a flight director display. Flight director information is displayed on the instrument that displays the aircraft’s attitude

Flight Director Functions An FD is an extremely useful aid that displays cues to guide pilot or autopilot control inputs along a selected and computed flightpath. The flight director usually receives input from an ADC and a flight data computer.

Flight Director Functions An FD is an extremely useful aid that displays cues to guide pilot or autopilot control inputs along a selected and computed flightpath. The ADC supplies altitude, airspeed and temperature data, heading data from magnetic sources such as flux valves, heading selected on the HSI (or PFD/multi-function display (MFD)/ electronic horizontal situation indicator (EHSI)), navigation data from FMS, very high frequency omnidirectional range (VOR)/distance measuring equipment (DME),.

A flight director is a guidance aid that is overlaid on the Attitude indicator and shows the pilot of an aircraft the attitude required to follow a certain trajectory. Flight director guidance can be used in both manual flight and with the Autopilot engaged.

Flight Control System (FCS) is a key component in aircraft. The high reliability of FCS is needed to ensure the safety flight.

Then the individual controls and components are covered to include how those components connect to the aircraft systems.

GPS systems only have one job; to find the location of the aircraft as accurately as possible. An autopilot system will need to mimic the actions and controls of the pilot and technicians will need to understand what the system is doing. Section 6 Introduction to Autopilots This section covers the history of autopilots in aircraft and what they are expected to do for the pilots. Then the individual controls and components are covered to include how those components connect to the aircraft systems.
