Complex helicopter models are used for variance constrained control design and robustness studies. The modeling process is briefly outlined and followed by output and input variance constrained control design. Extensive numerical investigations of closed loop systems eigenvalues variations and time responses indicate that these controllers are robustly stable for modeling uncertainties in flight speeds, inertial properties, initial conditions and noise intensities.
