In a method for the piloting of an aircraft, enabling low-altitude flight by setting up a tangent with the relief to be overflown, the aircraft pilot determines the goals to be attained on a cartographic screen. This is done in enabling a computer, using altimetrical data, to define a ground profile and then a set of straight lines at a tangent to said ground profile. A method of this kind has the advantage of enabling an optimized flight plan to be reconfigured directly, when the pilot comes up against a threat that makes it necessary to change the pre-set flight plan. Application to military transport aircraft.
