Aircraft and airfoil design programs

This page contains a quite good list of aircraft design and airfoil programs

ZDesigner snapshot

I created Qt-based UI for the aircraft design program I am writing. The initial version is available from here:

http://www.katix.org/karoliina/packages/zdesigner-current.tar.gz

ChangeLog
COPYING
zdesigner – Ubuntu Intrepid Binary

You need to have Qt 4.5 installed to run the binary.

Xfoil for Ubuntu Intrepid

You may find out that Xfoil is not in the Ubuntu repositories. For compiling the source package, you need g77 compiler, but that is not included to Ubuntu Intrepid repositories right now and getting it to work from the source seems to be a lot of trouble. Here is what I found, after some digging, a ready made package which installed on Ubuntu Intrepid fine:

http://giuschet.altervista.org/Ubuntu/

Download the file and install with

sudo dpkg -i xfoil_6.97-1_i386.deb

If some of the dependending libraries are missing, just install those from Intrepid repository and it works fine without problems. Have fun!
