AbstractA formation flight mode development is one of the possible solutions for formation flight automation problem. This paper is focused on the formation flight mode objects and its structure definition, development process decomposition to several phases and flight trials methodology questions. It also covers human-machine interface and control algorithms design and simulation for formation flight mode. The formation flight mode development results presented in this paper are the foundation for further mode phases development.
Keywords:Formation flight mode, automatic control, flight trials, methodology, human-machine interface.
