  1. 1. SEMISTER 3RD ROLL NO: 03
  2. 2.  An Autopilot is a system used to guide a vehicle without assistance from a person.  Aircraft required the continuous attention of a pilot.  The constant attention led to serious fatigue for pilot.  So that autopilot is designed to perform some of the tasks of the pilot.
  3. 3.  The first aircraft autopilot was developed Elmer Ambrose Sperry, Sr. in 1992.  Demonstrated by his son Lawrence Sperry in 1914.
  4. 4. There are mainly 3 types of autopilot  A single-axis autopilot usually manages both the ailerons.  A two-axis autopilot manages elevators and ailerons.  A three-axis autopilot manages all three basic control systems ailerons, elevators and rudder.

  6. 6.  The heart of a modern automatic flight control system is a computer.  Computer gather all the details required to control the plane.  From sensors located on the airplane surfaces.
  7. 7.  They collect data from other airplane systems and equipment also.  Which includes gyroscopes, accelerometers, altimeters, compa sses and airspeed indicator, altitude indicator.
  8. 8.  The processors complex calculations accurately , compare it to pilot.  It perform the same duties as a highly trained pilot.  Autopilots don't just make flights smoother , they make them safer.  It reduce the fatigue to pilot due to constant attention..
  9. 9.  Autopilots can and do fail.  It can’t be override.  Airplane should be crashes if pilots have failed to disengage the automatic flight control system.
  10. 10.  A position sensor can also fail, resulting in incorrect input data to the autopilot computer.  Even if on autopilot mode, pilot need to be active.
  11. 11.  Most commercial jets have had autopilot.  Even smaller planes are incorporating autopilot systems.  Garmin, Thales ,Rockwell Collins and Honeywell are some manufacturers of autopilot.
  12. 12.  The Garmin bringing true automatic flight control to a new generation.  Autopilots are also used in boats (known as self- steering gear), space craft, missiles.
