Trajectory tracking and configuration stabilization for the vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft has been so far considered in the literature only in the presence of a slight (or zero) input coupling (i.e., for a small ε). In this paper, our main contribution is to address global configuration stabilization for the VTOL aircraft with a strong input coupling using a smooth static state feedback. In addition, the differentially flat outputs for the VTOL aircraft are automatically obtained as a by-product of applying a decoupling change of coordinates.
