The paper presents conception and practical realization of laboratory testing of control system for small aircraft. The stand used in these tests is prepared in Matlab and Simulink environment. Usage of xPC and RTW modules enables the system to perform “Hardware in the loop” real time tests including tests with pilots. As a hardware PC computer equipped with specialized boards, including A/C, C/A, converters and RS232, LPT, CAN 2B data lines was used. The main task of presented stand is to make possible tests of control system introducing new conception of aircraft controlling (e.g. smart control and decoupled control techniques).
