Click to edit Master subtitle style Virginia Tech Aircraft Performance – Drag Review For a wing (low-speed subsonic), CD = Cd + Cd,i Cd is the profile drag coeff., includes skin friction and pressure drag. CD,i is the induced drag coeff., e is the span efficiency factor. For a wing (transonic and supersonic), Cd is the profile drag coefficient that also includes wave drag.
