	  abstract     = {In this paper, the process of obtaining Q and R
matrices for optimal pitch aircraft control system has been described.
Since the innovation of optimal control method, the determination of
Q and R matrices for such system has not been fully specified. The
value of Q and R for optimal pitch aircraft control application, have
been simulated and calculated. The suitable results for Q and R have
been observed through the performance index (PI). If the PI is small
“enough", we would say the Q & R values are suitable for that
certain type of optimal control system. Moreover, for the same value
of PI, we could have different Q and R sets. Due to the rule-free
determination of Q and R matrices, a specific method is brought to
find out the rough value of Q and R referring to rather small value of
PI.},
