A paper on the role of computers in fly by wire aircraft

Such capabilities are a major reason that aircraft manufacturers turned long ago to fly-by-wire technology to meet the exceptional demands placed on supersonic aircraft like the Concorde and military planes. The computer then directs the hydraulic or electric actuator to deflect a flight control surface.

The F is inherently unstable by design, meaning that it would fly out of control if the computers failed which is why there are three of them. We may also ask for other information about you, such as your credit card information when you are making a purchaseinterests, income, or education level.

My opinion of which type is better is of limited value, as most of the new airplanes are incorporating fly-by-wire.

By replacing movable metal parts with wire to control the airplane, designers have more freedom to work due to more space in the fuselage to work with.
