Flight control systems that lead commercial aviation
Flight control systems
We’ve been improving flight controls for 40+ years, with an installed base of 15,000 aircraft. Our fly-by-wire controls – the first in commercial aircraft – continue to make flight more agile, secure, and affordable. And our advances in autonomous controls and electric aircraft will further transform aviation.
Every second of the day, an aircraft somewhere in the world takes off enabled by ﬂight-critical systems designed, produced, and supported by BAE Systems. Our advanced, fly-by-wire (FBW) control systems are the operational heart of those aircraft, including our primary flight control computers (FCC), our active inceptor systems (AIS) and active control sticks (ACS), our slat & flap electronic control units (SFECU) and spoiler control electronics (SCE), our actuator control electronics (ACE), and our remote electronics units (REU). Whatever the nature of your aviation mission – manned or autonomous – no one delivers more advanced, high performance ﬂight control solutions for your aircraft than BAE Systems.
