A method and structure for selectively conducting pressurized gas flow over the upper surface of an airfoil, the airflow being selectively directable either rearward through a spanwise outlet to produce thrust and augment lift or, alternatively, directed forward to spoil the aerodynamic flow over the wing to diminish lift and provide a reverse-thrust braking. The structure includes a plenum defined in the airfoil and ducting to receive pressurized air or gas, the plenum being defined in part by a panel longitudinally pivoted at the central portion thereo...
An aircraft comprising: a power source adapted to produce gases under pressure through a power source exhaust, airfoils, plenum chambers defined spanwise through the airfoils, ducting means to connect the plenum chambers to at least a portion of the exhaust of the power source, an outlet communicating with the plenum chamber defined in the upper leading surface of each airfoil and extending spanwise across the major portion of the airfoil, a gate positioned in each outlet and spanwise pivoted at the middle of the gate for movement to selectively define r...
