Abstract : In the report an analysis is given and fundamental results systematized from foreign investigations on the development of promising means of automation of flight control of aircraft and helicopters. Structural diagrams and descriptions of the control systems of contemporary aircraft and helicopters, flexible aircraft, and also adaptive (self-adjusting, with variable structure, self-organizing) aviation systems are given. Bionic principles of adaptation and the possibility of their use in control systems of aircraft, and also the problems of automation of landing, flight on low and maximally low altitudes, and the arrangement of installed equipment are examined. Methods of reflecting flight information to the pilot, the systems of semiautomatic control, systems for the prevention of collisions of aircraft in the air, landing systems, profile flight and the contemporary complexes of installed equipment are described.
