Most of the existing linearization methods for nonlinear flight dynamics are based on the first order approximation of the model in the neighborhood of a given reference or equilibrium point. The resulting linear model approximates the nonlinear flight within relatively small variations of the state and the control around the reference point. However, the range of the domain within which the linearized model is valid is not known precisely. Besides, such an approach only applies for… CONTINUE READING
