Wing and Engine Combination Buyer's Guide

This is a rough indication of which engine and wing combinations may work best at different operating altitudes. Please note that this is only a rough guide and that performances may vary, depending on many factors. Note: This guide is primarily to do with lift and load-carrying performance. Other factors that go into wing choice would be single/double surface, slow/fast, etc.
