The long sought desire, of airframe manufacturers, to build stability in an aircraft about its roll axis, is herein dealt with. Stabilizers of various types, employing a variety of sensors, are discussed. Bringing stability to the roll axis brings about a further desire, that of holding a precise heading. The approach of one airframe manufacturer's method to this dual problem is explained in detail.
