THE automatic control of an aeroplane must stabilise in relation to the three axes. The ideal control must relieve the strain on the pilot's nerves and body throughout the flight, and leave him free for navigation. It must pilot the machine, no matter what the weather, in a smooth flight, through clouds and fog. Its use will therefore mean saving in human energy, greater safety in flight, and increase in efficiency.
