Abstract : The report presents the engineering design of a data insertion technique for remotely operating heading select and attitude reference features of a control/display system from a centrally located control console, the aircraft control wheel. The control logic presented and the location of the controllers enables the pilot to conveniently and precisely insert heading and attitude data into the control/display system. The processed commands emanating from this data can be executed either manually or automatically. This approach to flight control data insertion frees the pilot from the physical activity associated with other insertion methods. (Author)
