- artificial feel
- A type of force feedback that is used in aircraft fitted with power controls or automatic flight control systems. Artificial feel produces an opposing force to the movement of the controls. This opposing force may be proportional to the amount of deflection of control column or aerodynamic loads acting on the control surfaces, or amount of applied g.A ‘Q’-based artificial feel system. The amount of spring force opposing the movement of controls is directly dependent on dynamic pressure. This is a bulky system and can be made more compact if replaced with a hydraulic ‘Q’-feel system.
