The high performance fighter aircraft achieves a high angle of attack (up to 90Â°) and superb maneuverability because of the presence of leading edge flaps. In this paper we make an attempt to achieve reconfigurable control of this high performance fighter aircraft during auto-landing, using Extended Minimal Resource Allocating Network (EMRAN) augmented controller  with additional faults and validate the same through software simulation using MATLABÂ® SimulinkÂ® and also hardware implementation of the controller on a target Digital Signal Processor (DSP) using Hardware-in-the-loop simulation technique. A high fidelity aircraft model  with seven control surfaces, including leading edge flaps (LEF) in comparison to the low fidelity model that employs only five control surfaces is employed in the simulation as well as hardware implementation. Also while reconfiguring the aircraft model will be made dynamic where in multiple faults can occur at different instances.
