The ever increasing requirements that the aircraft must meet demand the use of new aerodynamic configurations because the ones that are currently in use have exhausted their potential for further improvement. The closed wing has a number of advantages that might address the requirements for economic efficiency and reduced ecological. At the conceptual design stage a large number of variants are created, from which, after being analyzed, the base variant is selected. In the process of variant creation a proper classification should be used, so that all possibilities to be properly assessed. Until now no closed wing aircraft classification has been published. The classification proposed in this article allows the creation and exploration of a large number of variants at the conceptual design stage, from which the optimal base variant, in regard to given criteria, to be selected.
