The aerodynamic prediction methodology available in ACSYNT is examined through comparison with aircraft data for a variety of classes of configurations. The predictions are a synthesis of the best empirical procedures currently available. The present work presents selected results obtained from the comparison, and shows how the basic capability can be enhanced by user supplied adjustments to represent changes in technology levels when considering advanced aircraft designs. The predictions and basis for adjustments are described for a supersonic cruise vehicle, a large subsonic transport, a typical fighter, an attack aircraft, and a typical business jet.
