Document Number: AS440A
Revision Number: A
Title
Automatic Pilots (Turbine Powered Subsonic Aircraft)
Scope
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers autoatic pilots intended for use on aircraft to automatically operate the primary and trim aerodynamic controls to maintain stable flight and/or to provide maneuvering about any of the three axes through servo control. Automatic control functions essential for primary or augmented flight control are excluded.
