This is an interesting package I've never seen before, although even being 
trained in aerodynamic and flight dynamics I'm feeling almost lost with the 
user interface it provides ;-). 

I read avl_doc.txt and session*.txt, but still not sure how to perform trivial 
tasks like computing the elevating force and the drag of a given wing 
profile. It seems I'm unable to enter or supply the values of: the profile 
form and angle of attack coefficients (for both elevation and drag), air 
density, air speed, and the wing area in square units.

Another problem I faced while was plotting sample *.avl files (for instance: I 
did ../bin/avl wing, then OPER followed by G) is that the plotted image gets 
rubbered off when I move other windows over it or when I partially move that 
x11plot window out of my screen and then drag it back. Is this a known 
problem with Xplot11 driver? I wish the GUI has been Qt/GTK/Wx, but 
nevermind ;-)

Other than that, you can remove the trailing dot from the short description as 
suggested by policy and lintian, and extend the long description a little
