English term or phrase: flight director bars
Dependent on the mode of operation of the flight director/autopilot the >flight director bars< will come into view and give the crew and indication of where the computer would like the aircraft to go. The principle is a before where the crew fly the aircraft to the deviation, and place the aircraft symbol over the cross hairs. These bars are driven by servo action from signals from the AFDC. If the flight director is switched off these bars drive out of view.

"So, just what is a Flight Director?

Well, it won't fly your airplane for you- that's the job of the autopilot. It won't plan your trip for you- that's your job. It won't navigate for you- once again, that's the job of the autopilot.

So just what does it do? Watch this. Basically a Flight Director gives visual cues to the pilot, so that the pilot can follow these cues with his inputs to the aircraft's controls and therefore take the airplane to the programmed destination.

Huh?

Let me try that again. The Flight Director displays visual cues on the Attitude Indicator, the AI. If you, the pilot, follow those visual cues by turning or pitching the aircraft as "directed", you will end up at your destination, be that the end of a runway, a VOR, a waypoint etc. In other words, the Flight Director directs.

Aha! Now the name Flight Director starts to make some sense." (http://stoenworks.com/Tutorials/Flight Directors.html)
