Abstract. Within a national research and development program funded by the german ministry of education and research (BMBF) new fly by wire flight control. Digital fly-by-wire (DFBW) is one of many success stories where technology developed under the U.S. space program has proven beneficial in other areas. PDF | This paper deals with the digital electrical flight control system of the Airbus airplanes. This system is built to very stringent dependability requirements both.

At any given time, thousands of some version of it are airborne around the world and some airlines, like Southwest and Ryanair, have all fleets.

If you've flown before, you've most likely flown on a It also can fly farther and carry more people than the previous generation of s , like the and The Max series consists of four models, of which the Max 8 is the most popular. The larger Max 9 has been flying only for a few months and the is still in development and has yet to fly.

A few airlines have ordered the smaller Max 7, but Boeing has yet to complete any deliveries.

Compared with previous versions of the , the Max's engines sit farther forward and higher up on the underwing pylons. The complete reports haven't been published yet.

Crash investigations are tremendously complex -- it takes months to evaluate the evidence and determine a probable cause. Investigators must examine the debris, study the flight recorders and, if possible, check the victims' bodies to determine the cause of death. They also involve multiple parties including the airline, the airplane and engine manufacturers and aviation regulatory agencies.

There are important clues so far. Well, because they're bigger, and because the sits so low to the ground a deliberate design choice to let it serve small airports with limited ground equipment , Boeing moved the engines slightly forward and raised them higher under the wing.

Fly-by-Wire Flight Control

If you place an engine too close to the ground, it can suck in debris while the plane is taxiing. That change allowed Boeing to accommodate the engines without completely redesigning the fuselage -- a fuselage that hasn't changed much in 50 years. But the new position changed how the aircraft handled in the air, creating the potential for the nose to pitch up during flight.

A pitched nose is a problem in flight -- raise it too high and an aircraft can stall. When a sensor on the fuselage detects that the nose is too high, MCAS automatically pushes the nose down. Of the four Max versions, only the Max 10 has yet to fly.

According to the preliminary report PDF from the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee, the Lion Air pilots were unable to determine their true airspeed and altitude and they struggled to take control of the plane before the crash, as it oscillated for 10 minutes.

Each time they pulled up from a dive, the system pushed the nose down again. The report also noted that maintenance crews had replaced the faulty sensor two days before the flight and that pilots on the four flights preceding the crash reported incorrect airspeed and altitude information a passenger likened one of those flights to a "roller coaster ride".

And like with the Lion Air crash, the sensor on the Ethiopian plane may have been damaged causing it to feed erroneous data to the MCAS system. On April 29, during Boeing's annual shareholders meeting in Chicago, CEO Dennis Muilenburg said the incorrect data was a common link in a chain of events that led to both crashes.

It's a link Boeing owns, he said, and one that the software update will fix. The original version of the first flew in Boeing Would the pilots have known about the faults? When asked about the warning light, a Boeing spokesman gave CNET the following statement on March "All Boeing airplanes are certified and delivered to the highest levels of safety consistent with industry standards.

Airplanes are delivered with a baseline configuration, which includes a standard set of flight deck displays and alerts, crew procedures and training materials that meet industry safety norms and most customer requirements. Customers may choose additional options, such as alerts and indications, to customize their airplanes to support their individual operations or requirements.

Then on June 7, Reps. Peter DeFazio, a Democrat from Oregon, and Rick Larsen, a Democrat from Washington, said they'd obtained information suggesting that even though the plane maker knew the safety alert wasn't working, it decided to wait until to implement a fix.

We fell short in the implementation of the AoA Disagree alert and are taking steps to address these issues so they do not occur again. It appears they are. Investigators at both crash sites have also recovered the jack screws, which manipulate the control surfaces on the horizontal stabilizer that pitch the nose up and down.

Do we know anything else about the Ethiopian crash?

The introduction of fly-by-wire FBW flight control systems has been a watershed development in aircraft evolution as it has enabled technical advances to be made which were not possible before. One of the unique benefits of a FBW system is the ability to exploit aircraft configurations which provide increased aerodynamic efficiency, like more lift and lower drag, but at a cost of reduced natural stability. This can include negative stability, that is the aircraft is unstable over part of the range of speed and height conditions or flight envelope.
