    Abstract

    As a substitute to the Wortmann airfoil FX-60-177, that is envisaged for NAL's Light Aircraft (NALLA), a new airfoil NAL-NLF-208 is designed at NAL. It is shown conclusively that the NAL airfoil is not only thicker than the Wortmann profile but also shows better aerodynamic efficiency in the operating C range
