Drag considerations for flight in atmospheric turbulence

The distribution of lift between the wing and tail surfaces of a conventional aircraft is examined in order to determine the combination that would produce the minimum drag for a given lift. Further, the center of gravity (CG) position which gives the desired lift distribution and at the same time,...
