The Fly By Wire (FBW) flight control mode as of today is uneasy for being used on small aircraft like basic trainers and Very Light Jets (VLJ), due to its intrinsic complex and expensive architecture. Mecaer is developing a concept solution that shall make FBW more compatible for said applications. The initial step requires the development of basic components like a suitable electromechanical actuator. In this aim the development of a rotary electromechanical actuator has been completed in the frame of the POR FESR program funded by Regione Piemonte.
