This Note is part of a series that derives a set of equations suitable for estimating the acquisition costs of various types of aircraft airframes in the absence of detailed design and manufacturing information. A single set of equations was selected as being the most representative and applicable to the widest range of estimating situations. For all mission types, the equation set uses empty weight and speed as the basic size-performance variable combination.
