aileron booster

aileron booster

The term refers to a hydro-booster for the operation of ailerons. The aileron booster is used in power-controlled aircraft. Aileron boosters minimize the force required to move the ailerons, and, except for power-assisted controls, there is no feedback of the aerodynamic forces to the control column.
