Abstract : A brief review is presented of the design and fabrication problems of plane and trapezoidal fiberglass wings with laminar profiles to be used in aerodynamic tests on an automatic airborne laboratory under real flight conditions. Techniques for manufacturing such plastic wings with required specifications and surface roughness and configuration allowances are described. The properties and fabrication of the wing rigging are discussed, and a version of a slotted plastic wing producing laminarization is described. A lower production cost, a simpler manufacturing technology, and higher aerodynamic properties are noted as the advantages of these plastic wings over riveted or wooden wings. (Author)
