Original Abstract

This paper presents the hardware-in-the-loop simulations of a hybrid flight control system for a light aircraft consisting of mechanical, electromechanical and digital components. The simulation was performed at a light aircraft simulation lab SimStar at Brno University of Technology. The aim was the validation and verification of the operational suitability of the flight control system's peripherals - electromechanical actuators, autopilot mode selection panel and a primary flight display. The investigated peripheral devices were connected to SimStar's network using CANaero communication protocol. The simulations were focused on the real time automatic flight control modes operational scenarios.
