In-flight Autopilot Systems Market By Application (Commercial Aircraft, Military Aircraft, Civilian Aircraft) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

In-flight autopilot systems form an integral part of a flight management system. It greatly reduces human intervention with regard to monitoring the aircraft. The in-flight autopilot system renders various functions such as course deviation warning, course tracking and coupling, altitude hold, vertical speed, and heading mode, among others. Often, in-flight autopilot systems make use of computer software to control the aircraft. Moreover, many in-flight autopilots incorporate thrust control capabilities, which are used to control throttles and ultimately optimize airspeed. Nowadays, in-flight autopilot systems are increasingly being deployed across all kinds of aircraft, considering the superior operational efficiency they offer.

The overall in-flight autopilot systems market is primarily driven by the increasing focus on automation on the part of airline companies. The installation of these systems in the aircraft improves the operational efficiency as well as the safety of the aircraft. These systems come in handy during times of turbulent weather and low visibility, as they enable the safe landing of the aircraft in such situations. In addition, pilots operating long-haul flights often make use of these systems, as it helps reduce their fatigue. The installation of in-flight autopilots in aircraft with more than twenty seats is generally made mandatory by international aviation regulations. Considering the numerous benefits associated with the installation of in-flight autopilot systems in aircraft, the market is set to continue growing steadily in the following years.
