The purpose of this work is to describe the suitable methods for aerodynamic characteristics calculation of hypersonic vehicles in free molecular flow and the transitional regimes. Moving of the hypersonic vehicles at high altitude, it is necessary to know the behavior of its aerodynamic characteristics for all flow regimes. Nowadays, various engineering approaches have been developed for modelling of aerodynamics of aircraft vehicle designs at initial state. The engineering method that
