Fundamental of wake turbulence effects on aircraft wing section is determined by using numerical approach. NACA 2412 wing section is selected in this study and the wing is model using GAMBIT 2.2 software. For the numerical analysis, the flow past over the wing was simulated using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software FLUENT 6.2. Simulations were carried out at different velocities at low Reynolds number and different angle of attack, α. The fundamental aerodynamic of wake effects analyzed from lift and drag coefficient values obtained from simulations that have been carried out. The outcome shows that the wake turbulence affected the lift and drag force of preceding aircraft is subjected to separation distance.
