DescriptionThe object of the investigation covered by this report was to determine the effect of changes in wing loading and aspect ratio on the performance and weight of single-seater pursuit airplanes. This information was obtained by making six preliminary wing designs for an airplane of this type using two aspect ratios and three wing loadings. The conclusion was that the lighter the wing loading the better will be the performance of a single-seater pursuit airplane in most particulars.
