Au`to*sta*bil"i*ty (?), n. [Auto- + stability.] (Mechanics)

Automatic stability; also, inherent stability. An aeroplane is inherently stable if it keeps in steady poise by virtue of its shape and proportions alone; it is automatically stable if it keeps in steady poise by means of self- operative mechanism.
