Parker Aerospace enjoys a wide reach in aviation manufacturing. It is likely that anyone who flew to Shanghai for this year’s ABACE show was on an aircraft that depends on a Parker system, whether flight controls, hydraulics, fuel, fluid conveyance, thermal management or engine components. In fact, the company is a key supplier for Comac’s ARJ21 regional jet and in-development C919 airliner.

Bell engineers are continuing to develop the fly-by-wire flight controls for the Bell 525 through a system integration lab cockpit simulator in Fort Worth. The helicopter will feature a low-slung instrument panel with four Garmin G5000H screens, futuristic sidesticks and  plunging cockpit side windows for excellent visibility.

The Bell 525 is flying off the coast of California en route to the main runway at Camp Pendleton. I beep the fingertip switch on the sidestick collective to slow for a smooth landing, thanks to the new helicopter’s coupled fly-by-wire (FBW) controls.
