This paper proposes a mixed nonlinear data-driven Model-Free Control (MFC) - Virtual Reference Feedback Tuning (VRFT) technique, where the parameters of the MFC algorithm are automatically computed via VRFT. The resulted mixed MFC-VRFT algorithm is then tested on a Multi Input-Multi Output twin rotor aerodynamic system model, and the results are compared with an MFC algorithm whose parameters were optimally computed using a Gravitational Search algorithm.
