## Abstract

The article considers the effect of atmospheric turbulence on optimal control of the motion of an aircraft. A generalized model of discrete gusts is used to describe turbulent atmospheric pulsations. A system of nonlinear stochastic differential equations is obtained that describe longitudinal motion of the aircraft in a nonquiescent atmosphere. This system is linearized in the neighborhood of the stationary solution corresponding to motion in an unperturbed atmosphere. The optimal control that minimizes the integral quadratic functional is synthesized by using the solution of the Bellman equation. The way in which the optimal control depends on the parameters characterizing atmospheric turbulence is analyzed. A numerical example is given.
