The conceptual phase of aircraft design determines the general size and configuration of an aircraft. Many calculations are performed in assessing the optimum parameters. The calculations are often lengthy and iterative in nature and are thus highly appropriate for computer programming. This thesis develops a computer program to enhance learning about design by performing calculations for aircraft conceptual design which follow hand calculation methods. It is intended to be used in the aircraft design course taught by the Department of Aeronautics at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California.
