Abstract : The report describes an experimental flight guidance system for controlling an aircraft's lateral axis during Instrumental Landing System approaches and landings. The system incorporates an inertial damping term in the form of drift angle, accomplishes runway alignment through the forward slip maneuver, provides roll out guidance through the rudder, and wings level control through the ailerons.
