A Variable-Fidelity Modeling (VFM) method has been developed as an efficient and accurate aerodynamic data modeling strategy. In this approach, a set of CFD methods with varying degrees of fidelity and computational expense is exercised to reduce the number of expensive high-fidelity computations. Kriging-based bridge functions are constructed to match the low- and high fidelity CFD data. The method is demonstrated by constructing a global approximation model of the aerodynamic coefficients of an RAE 2822 airfoil based on sampled data. The model is adaptively refined by inserting additional samples. It is shown that the method is promising for efficiently generating accurate aerodynamic models that can be used for the rapid prediction of aerodynamic data across the flight envelope
