The digital electrical flight control system of the Airbus A320/A330/A340 is discussed. The A320 was the first civil aircraft equipped with such a system. It was certified and entered into service in the first quarter of 1988. The A330 and A340 have identical systems, closely related to the A320 system. These systems are built to very stringent dependability requirements both in terms of safety (the systems must not output erroneous signals) and availability. The basic building blocks are fail… Expand
