Global In-Flight Autopilot (Automated) Systems Market is estimated to reach $9.4 billion by 2024; growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2016 to 2024.In-flight autopilotsystems form an essential part of a flight management and control system. It greatly reduces human interference with monitoring of the aircraft. The system reduces various functions such as, course tracking and coupling, course deviation warning, vertical speed heading mode, and altitude hold, among others. Often systems make use of computer software to control and guide the aircraft. Also, many systems integrate thrust control capabilities which are used to regulate throttles and eventually optimize the airspeed. The systems are increasingly being organized across all kinds of aircraft due to the superior operational capabilities it offers. 

Increasing focus on improving operational efficiency, growing need of automation in aviation industry, and rising need for advanced flight management are the factors driving the growth of the global in-flight autopilot systems market.The systems are developed with the major aim to improve reduction in pilot workload, fuel efficiency, and upgrading in flight safety, this is expected to further uplift the market for these automated systems. High dependence on airline companies and high cost of in-flight autopilot systemsmay hinder the growth of the market. Moreover, research and development activities to develop new featuresmight provide with several growth opportunities in the forecasted years.
