The UIUC Airfoil Data Site is a collection of airfoil coordinates and airfoil related links. The UIUC Airfoil Coordinates Database includes the airfoils, and they cover a wide range of applications from low Reynolds number airfoils for UAVs and model aircraft to jet transports and wind turbines. Originally the site included mostly low Reynolds number airfoils (about 160), but in December 1995 
the site was greatly expanded when David Lednicer of Analytical Methods, Inc. contributed his airfoil collection. This addition brought the total number of airfoils to over 1000. Since this time, the number of airfoils has expanded to include over 1500, and more will be added as they become available. Currently, the airfoils are listed in alphabetical order by the file name, which most often is the airfoil name or close. You can browse the directory, but it is suggested that you use your web-browser "find" button to search for keywords.
