Fly-by-Wire: A Historical and Design Perspective covers both the 'how' and the 'why' of the system's design and application. Written by authors who directed or staffed fly-by-wire research and development programs, the book covers the critical and development time period from 1961 to 1973. Including details on many flight tests, laboratory models and flightworthy hardware, Fly-by-Wire, also covers the many significant research programs conducted by the Air Force during that time. This book addresses the challenges faced by designers in both meeting technical requirements and creating a system with handling qualities acceptable to pilots. With insight into this remarkable technology which may change flying in the future. Fly-by-Wire is a valuable book for aircraft designers, engineers, pilots, and military more
