Abstract : An electrical circuit for allowing electrical power to be applied to the electro-mechanical sensors of an automatic flight control system of an aircraft only when either the Engine Start switch or AFCS Engage switch is closed separately or simultaneously. Upon the closing of either one or both of the switches, a pair of latching relays are energized which in turn provide electric power to the electro-mechanical sensors. (Author)
