If "solids can be tricky" then by modern standards the package is not a true solid modelling package. The majority of autoCAD users are using it in 2D. The 3D is pased on surfaces rather than solids.
I would say that from autodesk Inventor is their true solid modelling program, by modern standards.
If "solids are tricky" then there may be a better tool than autocad. However the wing sectioning should be possible in Autocad - even LT maybe. Perhaps easier with Mechanical Deskop too.
However this task is extremely easy in solidedge, solidworks, alibre, or prodesktop as in these packages solids are not tricky at all.
Prodesktop express will do this and costs nothing.
I'm not a salesman, and I'm not suggesting buying anything!
