Airbus will be replacing the present mechanical rudder control with electronic rudder control for future variants of the airbus series aircraft.


The E-rudder will become standard on the A319neo, A320neo, and the A321neo however, this modification will not be available for the conventional A320 family aircraft.


In addition to weight saving, the E-rudder will provide fuel saving, Ol reduction, Maintenance cost reduction.

With the E-rudder modification, the rudder trim failure would also no longer impact the Auto-Pilot availability.
