The locus of all points on an airfoil or wing lying at a 25% chord. These measurements are made in the plane parallel roots along the longitudinal axis of an aircraft. Normally, the reference wing is in a clean configuration, but it includes sawtooth and other basic modifications to the outline of the chord. The quarter-chord is the reference for many aerodynamic calculations.
