Nowadays, landing gears used in aircraft are the basic systems that carry the weight of aircraft systems and provide them to move on the ground. During the landing of aircraft, big and sudden vibrations occur as soon as the wheels come into contact with the runway. This situation negatively affects human safety, comfort and also the life of the landing gear system. Therefore, it is important to keep this vibration at permissible levels. This paper presents an improved vibration control method that controls the amplitudes of vibrations of landing systems. This paper presents proposed vibration control method that controls the angular position variables of the landing gear mechanism to control the vibrations occurring during landing. For different runway conditions and 200 km/h landing speed, the angular joint variables of the landing gear mechanism links are controlled using standard controller and a proposed neural controller structure. The simulation results are shown that the proposed neural controllers have better performance at vibration control of landing systems during landing.
