    Abstract

    Preliminary results of an optimization study on a13; passenger aircraft for minimum direct operating cost for a given route are presented. In this study only the main wing parameters viz. aspect ratio, taper ratio, leading edge sweep, thickness ratio and the span are twiddled. Comparisons are made between an existing aircraft and its optimized version. The results are extremely interesting and further work to study the feasibility of incorporating such a wing is in progress.
