Introduction to Airplane Design (Content)
Use a comprehensive wind tunnel simulation to help you understand how
airfoils develop lift, how shape effects performance, and to investigate airfoil
shapes to use for your own model aircraft designs to build and fly!
Quickly learn many science principles
Easily design aircraft
The extensive theory and design sections provide many learning opportunities; with
concepts throughout, explained in terms of basic science and physics principles. Use this
software to cover many learning standards in a challenging and interesting way.
The project section is intuitive and easy to use with simple diagnostics to help you
design. Use it to rapidly prototype and optimize your aircraft before you build them
off-line. View your design any time using Plan or 3-D viewing with adjustable angles.
For those with 3D printers the latest version includes the option to generate 3D solid
files (.stl) of computer designs for use with printers. Guides are included to aid in
coming up with aircraft that can readily be 3D printed. Simply print out the
components and glue them together to construct great gliders and aircraft.
