    I am currently designing a general aviation amphibious aircraft, and am looking at designing the wing. I saw some other posts about a similar airfoil, so I thought some one would be able to answer the question I have.
    What is the position of the maximum thickness of this airfoil?

    You should check this page:
    You can also download foil coordinates by choosing the format (xls, dat or polar) at the right side of the website page.

    The GAW series of airfoils have been a disappointment. They don't appear to perform as well as one would expect from their wind tunnel test data. Some of the classic series of airfoils might be a better choice.
