What does FBW mean?

Fly by Wire
Fly by Wire: The Geese, the Glide, the Miracle on the Hudson is a book written in 2009 by William Langewiesche about US Airways Flight 1549 with emphasis on the role played by the advanced fly-by-wire flight control system of the aircraft. The following is an excerpt: Langewiesche does not, however, state how the environment around Runway 13 at LaGuardia is surrounded by water similar to the Hudson River. Nor does this assessment by Langewiesche, an experienced pilot, address the option of gliding into Teterboro airport on the west side of the Hudson and how a 30-second delay before pilot reaction actually brings the trajectory closer to Teterboro.
