On the record, Bendixo automatic flight control systems qualify as the world's
most experienced, most versatile for jet-age aircraft. Besides having flown more
than 1,500,000 hours and over half a billion miles with the world's leading
airlines, they have logged uncounted hours and miles on aircraft in the daily
service of the U.S. and Canadian Air Forces and Navies. In May 1957, the Bendix
PB-20 became the first transistorized flight control system approved for airline
use. Variations of it ...
