Airfoils for Light Transport Aircraft 810576

This paper presents data from tests in a two-dimensional pressurized wind tunnel of two new wing sections suitable for light transport aircraft, and a NACA 633-418 airfoil. The two new airfoils had maximum thickness/chord ratios of 18% and 21% and they were designed to achieve improved high lift and low drag by exploiting considerable aft loading and blunt trailing edges.
