This note presents simple controllers for achieving asymptotic trajectory (set-point and time-varying) tracking under the conditions of restricted input in vertical takeoff and landing aircraft. Unlike previous studies that apply nonlinear combination of saturated functions for stabilizing the closed-loop system, the proposed controllers are based on smooth functions that can easily be implemented in real time applications.
