Aircraft Flight Control Systems Market

Aircraft Flight Control Systems Companies - Moog Inc. (US) and Safran SA (France) are the Key Players

The Aircraft Flight Control Systems market size is projected to grow from USD 14.5 Billion in 2022 to USD 21.5 Billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 8.2 % from 2022 to 2027. The necessity for lightweight flight control systems to fulfill the demand for modern aircraft and increased air traffic footprint is expected to influence the demand for commercial aircraft globally. However, delays in aircraft orders are anticipated to hinder market growth during the forecast period.

An aircraft flight control system combines mechanical and electronic equipment that ensures exceptional precision and reliability in controlling an in-flight aircraft. It consists of primary, secondary, and auxiliary systems, wherein primary flight control systems are used to control ailerons, elevators, and rudders, which are required to control an aircraft safely during flight for pitch, roll, and yaw movements. The secondary control systems control wing flaps, leading edge devices, spoilers, and trim systems of an aircraft and are used to improve the performance characteristics of an airplane or relieve the pilot of excessive control forces. Modern aircraft flight control systems are being developed to increase the safety, usefulness, and situational awareness of airplanes.
