An improvement to an aircraft control stick is disclosed. Movement of an aircraft may generate a force which undesirably causes the aircraft pilot to deflect the aircraft's control stick, which thereby results in the aircraft deviating from the desired flight path. The present invention includes a processor-based system which employs an algorithm that generates a signal for causing the control stick to resist such forces. The invention includes a spring and damper connected to the control stick so that the spring constant and damping ratio may be varied.
