Investigates the extension of the gain-scheduling approach to flight control tasks where the conditions required by conventional techniques need not be satisfied. In particular, situations are considered where the vehicle, is manoeuvring aggressively far from equilibrium, the airspeed need not be slowly varying and/or scheduling on the instantaneous incidence angle is required
