A fuzzy logic system is developed for automatic landing control of a transport aircraft. A linear longitudinal aircraft model, with landing gear and flaps deployed at the sea level, is employed for fuzzy logic controller design of automatic landing system including the two landing phases - the glide-path capture and the flare maneuver. In addition, the fuzzy control system is tested using different values of fuzzy controller scaling factors on a six degree of. freedom nonlinear aircraft model. It is shown that the simple tuning fuzzy controller with altered scaling factors is well suited for controlling the trajectory of the aircraft in the landing phase which requires simultaneous control of engine thrust for the velocity and elevator for the pitch attitude in order to change altitude with a constant airspeed.
