    Most aircraft accidents occurred during final approach or landing. This study proposes cerebellar model articulation controller (CMAC) to improve the performance of automatic landing system (ALS). The atmospheric disturbances affect not only flying qualities of an airplane but also flight safety. If the flight conditions are beyond the preset envelope, the automatic landing system (ALS) is disabled and the pilot takes over. An inexperienced pilot may not be able to guide the aircraft to a safe landing at the airport when wind shear is encountered. An adaptive type-2 fuzzy CMAC (FCMAC) is applied to PID control to construct intelligent landing system which can guide the aircraft to a safe landing in severe wind shear environment.
