In this paper we investigate a pursuit based decentralized leader-follower formation control algorithm. In particular, we propose a modified pursuit algorithm to maintain the tight formation geometry of three micro air vehicles particularly during turns and circles. This work assumes minimal flight information exchange among the vehicles. The designed formation algorithm generates normal and tangential acceleration commands which are to be accurately tracked by the inner loop control of the vehicles autopilot. To illustrate our algorithm numerical simulations are provided.
