Reynolds number (Aviation)
REYNOLDS NUMBER - In fluid mechanics, a number that indicates whether the flow of a fluid (liquid or gas) is absolutely steady (in streamlined, or laminar flow) or on the average steady with small, unsteady changes (in turbulent flow; ...
Reynolds Number: A non-dimensional ratio expressing conditions for similar motions in viscous fluids such as air. Comparisons of Reynolds Numbers permits comparison of wind tunnel results for small models with full-scale practice.

A model aircraft is a small unmanned type made to fly for fun, for static display, for aerodynamic research (cf Reynolds number) or for other purposes. A scale model is a replica of some larger design.
development of everything from the two-seat Legacy to the Columbia 300/350 (back when the companies were combined-the airplane is now known as the Cessna Corvalis). Cole is considered especially adept at designing airfoils with low Reynolds numbers ...
