We discuss the issues of implementation of a higher order discontinuous Galerkin (DG) scheme for aerodynamics computations. In recent years a DG method has intensively been studied at Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI) where a computational code has been designed for numerical solution of the 3-D Euler and Navier-Stokes equations. Our discussion is mainly based on the results of the DG study conducted in TsAGI in collaboration with the NUMECA International. The capacity of a DG scheme to tackle challenging computational problems is demonstrated and its potential advantages over FV schemes widely used in modern computational aerodynamics are highlighted.
