Keywords: autoland, propulsion-controlled aircraft, emergency system, monte carlo simulations

An emergency autoland system using only variations of engines’ thrust in order control the aircraft will be presented. It is an evolution of an already published version and that increases significantly the behavior in the presence of disturbances. Performance is assessed by means of Monte Carlo simulations.
