New-generation active side stick unit

Safran's new active side stick unit for civil aircraft and helicopters incorporates a number of patented innovations. It features high reliability, a robust design that stands up to all types of contingencies, and an optimized architecture allowing real-time regulation of load laws. Both pilot-copilot coordination and the management of stressful situations are greatly facilitated, thanks to the stick shaker and fine synchronization of side stick units.

The active side stick unit was extensively tested with input from seasoned pilots, to ensure flight safety and also support crew training.
