The present work defines the basic aerodynamic characteristics of typical aerospace vehicle during hypersonic flight in rarefied atmosphere, obtained with the Monte-Carlo method based on the hypothesis of locality. The present results are the aerodynamics characteristics of aerospace vehicle by Monte-Carlo method in free molecular flow at different values of Reynolds number and temperature factor. The results can be used for aerospace vehicle design project.
