Air File - Table 404

Recommended Posts

Hi,I have been reading quite a lot about Table 404 of the .air file recently & have a question about those graphs...I understand that the curves represent the values of coefficient of lift relative to angle of attack, but it seems that there is more than 1 curve displayed - I would expect to see one for the main wing, but is something else being displayed here, e.g. values for the fuselage, or overall values, in addition to those for the wing?Thanks.

Other tables will contain data for the change of CL with elevators, flaps etc. Have you read AirEd.ini yet?Air File Editorshttp://perso.wanadoo.fr/hsors/FS_Soft/fsairfile.htmlIan
