airframe design software

what design software do you use or have heard being used for light aircraft design? I am a EE, computer fluent and a pilot. I have the urge to investigate the design of a plane I saw pictured long ago - how to validate/update the design. Old data not available.

RE: airframe design software

Have you heard about X-PLANE flight simulator?
(www.x-plane.com) It allows you to design your
own aircraft and fly them as they really would
fly, as an engineering model, supposedly precice
enough to build a prototype around. Of course
there are many other programs to design aircraft
with but I would start with this and see how far
I got with it. Bart
