A number of activities in aeronautical engineering rely on the availability of models to represent the real behavior of the aircraft. Let us quote, for example, the development of autopilots and synthesis of flight control laws, the study of the handling qualities, the fault monitoring process, the prediction of hazardous behaviors, or the implementation of simulators used to train the pilots and to validate hardware and software systems. The initial modeling derived from CFD, wind...
