This work concerns output trajectory tracking for the McDonnell Dougglas YAV68B Harrier VSTOL aircraft. This system can perform three distinct flight modes, and is modelled with a Lagrangian nonlinear hybrid non-minimum phase dynamics. Output tracking is solved using classical input/output linearization scheme associated to an internal dynamics stable inversion for each flight mode dynamics. The performance of the global switched control law is discussed and validated through simulation tests.
