A device for enhancing the lift capability of an aircraft wing is characterized by at least one forwardly projecting finger member mounted on the leading edge of the wing. The finger generates counter-rotating vortices, each in contact with the other, trailing backwardly across substantially the entire upper surface of the wing behind the fingers as the airflow moves upwardly and around the lateral edges of the finger. As the counter-rotating vortices trail backwardly over the upper surface of the wing, a blockage effect is created and the airflow patter...
Apparatus for increasing the lift generated by an aircraft wing, having upper and lower surfaces, while propelled through a fluid medium comprising: a finger mounted adjacent to the leading edge of the wing and extending forwardly therefrom, said finger having a first dimension measured with respect to the forward direction and a second dimension measured in a direction transverse thereto, said finger having lateral edges thereon; said finger being mounted on the wing such that as the wing is propelled through the fluid medium impingement of the fluid me...
