FlyByWire (PRO only)

Next to the FMGS is the FlyByWire module which is only available in the PRO package. The FlyByWire translates the sidestick inputs into control surface deflections. With the sidestick only a roll rate and g-load are commanded.

The FlyByWire also takes care of various protections. This is done by monitoring various flight parameters (e.g. pitch, bank, speed, AoA). In case parameters are out of the normal range the FlyByWire will enable protections like Alphafloor or TOGA LOCK.

Another example is the pitch and bank limitation. All those protections help to keep the aircraft all the time in a safe envelope.
