The design of the high-lift system is crucial for the economical success of a commercial airplane. The aim of this work is to find an optimized high-lift system with improved aerodynamic performance and kinematic properties. The analysis presented in this work covers the simulation of the aerodynamics and the kinematics, which are embedded in an optimization framework. The optimization revealed a configuration that fulfills the kinematic constraints and an improvement in the aerodynamic
