The current challenges in wind turbine aerodynamics simulations share a number of similarities with the challenges that the aerospace industry has faced in the past. Some of the current challenges in the aerospace aerodynamics community are also relevant for today’s wind turbine aerodynamics community and vice versa. This paper sketches these similarities in broad strokes and points out the possibilities to revive solutions from the aerospace aerodynamics community from the 1960’s onward that, with some modifications, can be applied to wind turbine aerodynamics problems. Opportunities are indicated where both the wind turbine and the aerospace aerodynamics communities can benefit from collaborative research.
