Significance of the influence of operating propellers on aircraft aerodynamic characteristics is well-known. Wind tunnel testing of an aeroplane model with operating propellers is a complex task regarding the required similarity of the full-scale and the model case. Matching sufficient similarity in axial and rotational velocities in the propeller slipstream is the primordial condition for the global aerodynamic similarity of the wind tunnel testing. An example of the model power units with related devices is presented. Examples of the wind tunnel testing results illustrate the extent of propeller influence on aerodynamic characteristics of a generic aircraft.
