In this paper, fuzzy logic control method is used to control the formation flight of fixed wing aircraft in leader-follower form. A two loop control structure is used. In the inner loop, aircraft flight is controlled using the State Dependent Riccati Equation (SDRE) method. In the outer loop, fuzzy logic control approach is used to control the formation guidance. The success of the approach is demonstrated through simulations.
