A complete treatment of automatic flight control systems (AFCS) for fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft, this text covers in detail the subject of stability and control theory. All the principal AFC modes are covered and the effects of atmospheric turbulance and structural flexibility of the air frame upon the performance of AFCS are treated. Chief engineers, flight dynamics engineers, flight control system engineers and pilots, electronic and aeronautical engineers, and those taking courses in flight control systems may find this a useful text.
