Which condition must be met in order for the A–10 enhanced attitude control (EAC) to ARM?
A. Radar altitude must be on and operational B. Low altitude autopilot (LAAP) must be engaged with no failures C. Pitch and yaw stability augmentation system (SAS) must be engaged with no SAS failures D. Heading attitude reference system (HARS) must be selected on the NAV mode select panel and its data valid
Many people have become calmer while on planes even if they have some anxiety about flying because airplanes usually have autopilot. This refers to the way that the plane can fly usually on its own without a human having to control the plane.
That does not mean that a human does not need to sit in the pilot’s seat or be aware of what it happening with the aircraft. It is still very important for the pilot to be in charge of the aircraft. Attitude control is when a vehicle senses through sensors about the whereabouts of its place in an area in comparison to other objects around it.
In this case the condition that must be met in order for the A-10 enhanced attitude control to arm is for the low altitude autopilot to be engaged.
