In this paper a computational methodology of aerodynamic interaction between propeller and wing is described. Presented work is focused on development of quick and accurate tool. Lifting line theory (LLT) with nonlinear airfoil characteristic is used to solve a finite span wing aerodynamic to predict downwash and lift distribution respectively. Blade element momentum theory (BEM) is used as a computational tool for estimating total thrust, torque, axial and tangential velocity distributions. Model of slipstream development is considered. Influence of propeller model to wing is simulated as contribution of higher dynamic pressure and change of angle of attack behind the propeller.
