This paper describes the design of an autoflight controller, based upon nonlinear model-based control laws. These control laws include the previously developed concept of Pseudo Control Hedging (PCH). This PCH algorithm adapts the reference model for the system output in case of unachievable commands due to control input saturation. This control algorithm has been applied on a high fidelity simulation model of the VFW-614 ATTAS (Advanced Technologies Testing Aircraft System) laboratory aircraft, where its beneficial influence has been illustrated. Test flights have been performed with ATTAS to evaluate the flight control technique in a relevant environment.
