'''Fly-By-Wire'''
  
Since the events of 11 September 2001, military interception of aircraft which are not responding to communications with ATC has become commonplace. Furthermore, because of the security issues, such intercepts are potentially hazardous and it is important that crews know what to expect when intercepted and are aware of the signals used by military aircraft and how to respond.

Fly-by-Wire is the generally accepted term for those flight control systems which use computers to process the control movements made by the pilot or autopilot and send appropriate electrical signals to the flight control surface actuators. This arrangement replaces mechanical linkage. and means that the pilot inputs do not directly move the control surfaces. Instead, inputs are read by a computer that in turn decides how to move the control surfaces to best achieve what the pilot wants.

Fly-By-Wire

Fly-by-Wire is the generally accepted term for those flight control systems which use computers to process the control movements made by the pilot or autopilot and send appropriate electrical signals to the flight control surface actuators. This arrangement replaces mechanical linkage. and means that the pilot inputs do not directly move the control surfaces. Instead, inputs are read by a computer that in turn decides how to move the control surfaces to best achieve what the pilot wants.
