Flight Management Systems - Central Ingredient of the 1980’s Avionics Shipset? 800626
Flight Management Systems promise to be of considerable use in the aircraft cockpit of the 1980’s. By providing to the pilot and aircraft operator a consolidated system to simplify the flight management task while optimizing aircraft operating time and saving fuel, these systems will and should be considered a necessary ingredient in the 1980’s avionics shipset. Perhaps their greatest asset will be their ability to reduce the time that the pilot spends on tasks that take his attention away from his primary objective -- safe aircraft flight.
