Advanced Flight Control For The Fokker 100 881373

The Automatic Flight Control and Augmentation System (AFCAS), recently certified on the Fokker F28 - Mk0100, provides this aircraft with a full flight regime autoflight system including CAT IIIb autoland capability and a fully integrated autothrottle. The FCS-1000, developed jointly by Rockwell International and the Fokker Aircraft Company, is based upon a classical triplex architecture interfaced with dual electromechanical servos. Additional new features designed to decrease the flight crew's workload in critical flight phases and to achieve a higher level of flight safety include: ultimate aircraft speed protection functions (i.e. an Engine Out Driftdown profile), coupled Windshear Escape, and a new Flight Mode Annunciation philosophy.
