Mikoyan MiG-35 Gets Electronic Flight Mode Limiter to Prevent Tailspin

The MiG Corporation has developed and patented a system to limit the maximum flight modes of a fighter to prevent it from getting into a tailspin. This system is currently implemented in the Mig 35 and the MiG-29M/M2. Compared to the previous mechanical model of limited installed in the previous models of fighters – the MiG-23 and MiG-29 which prevented the pilot from fully controlling the exit of the aircraft to the maximum operating mode, the modern limiter system will allow the pilot will be able to stay within the permissible overload parameters in any flight mode.

The MiG Corporation have been improving the limiter of flight modes of maneuverable aircraft for the last five years. The difficulty lay in the fact that it was necessary to keep within the limit parameters in the entire area of ​​maneuvering without deteriorating the technical properties of the fighter. The tests were carried out in a variety of flight modes. Now the company are confident that they have managed to achieve their goal. The patented integrated system improves the tactical and technical performance of MiG fighters.
