Introduction

The characteristic of aircraft drag is one of main qualifications to judge the performance of an aircraft. Aircraft drag reduction is a very actual and important problem. One percent drag decrease lets, approximately, to 10 percent increase aircraft payload or increase long-range.Many reports[1-7]were made on this subject presenting multifarious new technique for drag reduction. Hereinto, it is a novel approach for reducing aerodynamic drag by employing plasma.
