This paper presents an effective maximal-length sequence design for system identification of a continuous-time linear aircraft model. The maximum-length sequence is used as the exciting signal because it is a realistic signal for identifying the aircraft model. This paper proposes two design parameters for the maximum-length sequence, which are related to the dynamical modes of aircraft. According to the identification procedures using the proposed design parameters and the subspace identification method, a continuous-time linear aircraft model in longitudinal motion is well identified in a numerical simulation.
