How to use "Airfoil" in context?

An airfoil is an aerodynamic device that greatly improves the aerodynamics of an aircraft. They are used on planes such as the Airbus A320 and the Boeing 787. Airfoils are designed to make the plane fly faster and more efficiently through the air. An airfoil is shaped like a wing and helps reduce drag on the plane by providing more lift. Airfoils can be designed to be either symmetrical or asymmetrical. Symmetrical airfoils perform the same in all directions, while asymmetrical airfoils provide more lift in the forward and rear directions.
