The paper deals with the aerodynamic design of a twin-engine commuter aircraft. The research concerns the aerodynamic analysis and investigation on some effects such as the wing-fuselage-nacelle interference, the wing span loading, aircraft directional stability and winglet design. The paper shows also some experimental data obtained through wind-tunnel tests.
