Under the agreement, FADEC Alliance will develop, produce, and support full authority digital engine controls (FADEC) for future GE Aviation commercial engines, furthering the company's position in the aviation market.
The jet was flying fine with no control issues at all; however, I quickly noticed that my R ENG had been commanded to idle by the FADEC. This meant that the FADEC sensed a problem with the right engine, took control of said engine, and locked the N2 RPM at a flight-idle setting.
The modular design and dual channel Fadec make the Ardiden 3 highly reliable and easy to use, with the benefit of exceptionally low fuel consumption.
to push a button to disable one FADEC or channel at a time, similar to the mag check you've done for years.
"The hazard analysis of Chinook Mark 2 identifies the software in the engine Fadec (control system) as safety critical and states that any malfunctions or design errors could have catastrophic effects," it read.

The solution will represent an improved computational capability over existing Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) hardware and software systems through the use of optimized signal-processing algorithms and a robust, small form-factor processor technology code-named BFX.
The aircraft features a sophisticated digital engine control system, Fadec, and other performance monitoring components that have had to be linked together.
"I hope the first flight will take place at the end of the year, but that will depend on the feasibility of the FADEC [the engine control software system]."
The LSP-2 prototype powered by the latest IN20 engine with Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) is in the Standard of Preparation (SOP) that would be cleared for induction into the IAF service soon.
Engine problems and late arrival of FADEC control software have been blamed for repeated delays in the maiden flight.
Honda claims this is the first "ultra-compact" Full Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC) system for a jet engine in the 1,000 to 3,500-lb thrust class, and that it provides superior operational reliability without the need for separate variable control mechanisms.
