Introduction Flight Control System: A conventional fixed-wing aircraft flight control system consists of flight control surfaces, the respective cockpit controls, connecting linkages, and the necessary operating mechanisms to control an aircraft's direction in flight.

Types of flight controls: Mechanical Hydraulic-Mechanical Fly-by-wire Other. Aileron Control System Two separate lateral control systems are provided: the pilots side operates the left-hand aileron and the copilots side operates the right-hand aileron.

Normally, both control systems are interconnected through the forward torque tube interconnect assembly, and there is simultaneous movement of both ailerons.

The glareshield panel, commonly referred to as the MCP, contains not only the Mode Control Panel, but also the master caution lights annunciations, fire warning lights and, on the NG's, the EFIS control panels.

Whilst the MCP has evolved with the autopilot, the master caution and fire warning lights have remained unchanged through to the present day which is testimony to its good initial design.

In this paper, we consider different approaches for the neural network controller tuning in the flight control system. Two of the most common tuning approaches in the adaptive control theory are applied.

The first one uses parameter identification technique and consists in solving a real-time regression problem for the control law. The second approach is based on the Lyapunov direct method. Define automatic flight control system.

The flight control computer is at the core of any modern aircraft, both manned and unmanned. In both cases, the flight control computer actuates the primary flight control surfaces to drive the flight path of the aircraft, while also providing finer control for stability. Given the criticality of these functions, flight control computers are often used in a dual or triple redundant.

The design of an advanced flight control system (FCS) is a technically challenging task for which a range of engineering disciplines have to align their skills and efforts in order to achieve a successful system design.
