In this paper, an approach to detect and isolate the aircraft sensor/control surface faults affecting the mean of the Kalman filter innovation sequence is proposed, and a new structure for a fault tolerant aircraft control system is presented. In the simulations, the longitudinal and lateral dynamics of an F-16 aircraft model is considered, and detection and isolation of pitch rate gyro faults and control surface faults are examined. The principal block diagram of a fault tolerant aircraft control system is illustrated.
