Active Disturbance Rejection Control (ADRC) offers a viable framework for flight control that both inherits what is right about proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers that makes it a long lasting industrial solution and addresses its weaknesses. Building on this foundation, ADRC as a way of thinking and a methodology can be understood and accepted by practicing engineers. Several flight control applications are used to show flexibility and applicability of the proposed framework in tackling diverse problems in flight control. It appears that such a solution is simple to understand, easy to implement, and convenient to tune, thus making it highly user friendly and effective.
