This research aims at prediction of aerodynamic drag on a conventional helicopter fuselage, EC-120. The drag has been evaluated using theoretical method which is aircraft elements method  and numerical method which is using commercial software Fluent 6.2 . The two results are found to be in good agreement. This result is being confirmed by the drag value of similar group helicopter.
