We propose an extension to the capabilities of the Intelligent Autopilot System (IAS) from our previous work, to be able to learn handling emergencies by observing and imitating human pilots. [...] Key Method A robust Learning by Imitation approach is proposed which uses human pilots to demonstrate the task to be learned in a flight simulator while training datasets are captured from these demonstrations. The datasets are then used by Artificial Neural Networks to generate control models automatically.Expand
