For example, an aircraft flight control actuator provides the force and direction to physically move the flight control surface, such as an aileron. If the actuator fails or functions incorrectly, this will cause loss of flight control and possible loss of the aircraft.

If transition directly to a safe state is not possible, then it may be necessary to continue operation in a reduced capacity mode and switch to alternate contingency plans. Abort termination is an intentional decision and should be based on preestablished criteria. In system safety, special consideration must be given to the possible need for an abort, and the mechanisms implementing an abort, when designing system operations. In other words, safe system operation necessitates that abort contingencies be considered and planned in advance of actual operation, particularly for safety-critical functions (SCFs) and operations.
