Abstract

See full text

A system for enabling an operator to select a signal indicative of an air mode and a ground mode of an airplane is provided. The air mode is a state of the airplane when the airplane is in the air, and the ground mode is a state of the airplane when the airplane is on the ground. The system includes a plurality of sensors that sense parameters indicative of whether the airplane is sensed in the air or sensed on the ground. Sensed mode logic that determines whether the airplane is sensed in the air or sensed on the ground is provided, The sensed mode logic generates a signal indicative of a sensed ground mode when at leant two sensors indicate the airplane is sensed on the ground. The sensed mode logic generates a signal indicative of a sensed air mode when less than two sensors indicate the airplane is sensed on We ground. An operator interface is also provided. A simulated air mode and a simulated ground mode are selectable via the operator interface. Override control logic outputs a signal indicative of the ground mode when either the sensed mode logic outputs a signal indicative of a sensed ground mode or the operator selectable ground mode is selected and the operator selectable air mode is not selected. The override control logic outputs a signal indicative of the air mode when either the sensed mode logic generates a signal indicative of a sensed air mode or the operator selectable air mode is selected and the operator selectable ground mode is not selected.
