In-flight automated or autopilot systems form an essential part of a flight management and control system. It greatly reduces human interference with monitoring of the aircraft. The system reduces various functions such as, course tracking and coupling, course deviation warning, vertical speed heading mode, and altitude hold, among others. Often systems make use of computer software to control and guide the aircraft. Also, many systems integrate thrust control capabilities which are used to regulate throttles and eventually optimize the airspeed. The systems are increasingly being organized across all kinds of aircraft due to the superior operational capabilities it offers.
The major factor that is boosting the market for these systems is the rising need for advanced flight management. The mounting demand for these advanced technologies for navigation and in-flight planning, these systems have been introduced in some of the advanced aircrafts. The systems are developed with the major aim to improve reduction in pilot workload, fuel efficiency, and upgrading in flight safety, this is expected to further lift the market for these automated systems. High risk associated with the navigation software and high cost of installation are the factors restricting the market growth. On the other hand, increasing number of flights and technological advancements provide large opportunities to the market players.
