In this paper a problem of structural optimization of an aerofoil is examined. Authors' implementation of a multiobjective optimization algorithm based on differential evolution and elements of game theory is used as an optimization tool. Real requirements asked of aerofoil systems, described by mathematical functions are used as optimization objectives. Values of these functionals are determined numerically multiple times during the course of optimization. On the basis of a wing of unmanned
