In the present paper, a dynamical model in upper atmosphere flow conditions of a gravity-oriented satellite equipped with wings is considered; the major aim of the paper consists in studying the dynamics of the vehicle in a random aerodynamical force field and in evaluating the perturbations to the motion induced by wings. The equation of motion of such a system is a vector stochastic differential equation which is solved by means of a quasianalytical perturbation method, taking into account the presence of a small physical parameter. Moreover, some significant moments of the solution process are calculated and results for actual flight conditions are visualized.
