25th January 2006 at 03:22I am a pilot in the US and I am working to become an airline pilot soon. Can someone explain the advantages of fly-by-wire controls. I have talked with other pilots and in my own experience being able to feel what the airplane is doing is something no computer can reproduce. simular to driveing a car and feeling the road. so if this is the case why do both airbus and boeing make fly-by-wire the way of the future.
