The parameters include,   The Wing span in feet. The Wing Area if feet^2/sec. The Normal Gross Weight of the Airplane in pounds lb. The fuel capacity of the Airplane in gallons (gal) of aviation gasoline. The Power-plant / Engine Hourse Power value (hp). The Specific Fuel Consumption Value in lb/ (hp)(h) The Parasite Drag Coefficient of the Airplane Cd,0 value. The Value of the Oswald Efficiency Factor, e. The Value of the Propeller Efficiency And the Assumed Velocity in feet /sec. Performing the Calculation, The Power Required Value is Computed with the help of formula Pr = Tr*V A Table is also generated with the values of Velocity in ft/sec, Thrust Required in lb and the Power Required in ft.lb/sec And finally, the value of the Available Horsepower (hpa) of the Propeller Airplane is computed.
