Short Answer:
Gazebo natively does not have CFD to simulate lift and drag. In order to simulate those forces, you would need to create/use a Plugin.

Long Answer:
Check out the LiftDragPlugin Tutorial as well as its source code for hints on how you might simulate lift and drag using the CAD Model - to my knowledge, the LiftDragPlugin does not use the 3D model to calculate those forces.
