Advantages of Fly-by-wire Over Conventional Aircraft System are discussed below –

  • Design & Installation Savings

In fly-by-wire system, cable routings, maintainance accessibility, etc are eliminated. Approximately, 5000 man hours could be saved in design and installation of controls in any aircraft.

  • Weight Reduction

It is estimated that as much as 58% reduction in flight system control weights could be achieved. An aircraft manufacturer, General Dynamics, estimated 84% reduction oof weight which means almost 5350 lbs can be reduced per aircraft.

  • Space/Volume Reduction

Obviously, when weight will reduce, more space is created. Sperry Phoenix estimated 1469 inch cube in space. Just think how thin and linear an aircraft can be manufactured!
