An Active Role

For our commercial active sticks, the sky’s the limit

Cue the Feedback

After more than 25 years making the world’s only flight-worthy “active” pilot control systems for military aircraft, we’re now bringing this technology to commercial flight decks. Active Control Side Sticks can reduce cost, improve awareness for the flight crew, and work with our fly-by-wire systems to provide tactile cueing in the cockpit, resulting in increased safety and improved performance.

Active Sticks provide what’s called force feedback directly into the pilot’s hand, in real time. That force feedback, or tactile feedback, informs the pilot of impending flight envelope limits, or mode engagements, improving the pilot’s awareness and ability to control the plane.
