Aircraft wing fatigue life and weight are strongly influenced by maximum wing root bending moment. The object of the invention is to augment the wing root bending moment relief that can be provided by the deflection of aircraft ailerons (12) in the conventional manner, while reducing or eliminating aileron induced wing torsional loading. To accomplish this, a movable aerodynamic control surface (14) is mounted on the outboard side of a contoured boom (13) situated at each wingtip. The exact size and location of the control surfaces (14) are determined by...
A flight control device for an airplane having a fuselage and fixed wings each including an associated aileron comprising: an aerodynamically configured boom attached to and extending along the outer tip of each said wing and terminating beyond the leading edge of said wing; a single movable aerodynamic surface of airfoil contour attached to each said boom adjacent the forward end thereof so as to be disposed ahead of the leading edge of the associated wing and lying in a plane substantially parallel to the plane of said wing; and a mechanism operatively...
