There are a number of programs in the PDAS archives that appear to be of some value, but are lacking in some of the requirements for general release. I have decided to make these codes available for downloading and inspection by the aeronautical community. Each code has a reference page with some additional information. In some cases, the program compiles and seems to run, but there are no instructions or references available. The name in bold type following the slash in each program description is the name of the folder on the CD where the files for this program will be found.
