It is proposed to increase the degree of flight safety of aircraft based on the use of an onboard control system using approaches to build cyber-physical systems. For this purpose, an algorithm for countering the threat of an accident has been developed, which is implemented in a decision support device. This device is the main element of the flight safety control system of the aircraft and represents a dynamic expert system. The device provides the formation of recommendations for the crew to parry the accident. For this purpose, information on changes in the values of the input variables affecting the flight safety of the aircraft in time, as well as the psychophysical condition of the crew members, the technical condition of the control object, external factors, as well as the forecast of changes in flight conditions is used. The set of decision support rules is evaluated for completeness and absence of data inconsistency. Computer simulation of the algorithm, combined with the evaluation of a set of rules for decision support, allowed to confirm its performance. The research results should be used in the development of flight safety control systems for aircraft.
