An approach for airfoil parameterization using geometric parameters is proposed. This approach is meant to be used for the analytical airfoil contours. A class of combined polynomial airfoil contours is considered. The approximation accuracy is tested using the example of certain airfoils. The pressure distributions for the original and approximated airfoils are compared. An example of the optimization of the airfoil aerodynamic characteristics is considered.
