Auxiliary aeroelastic control flaps arranged on the leading edge of an aircraft\s wings at or near the wing tips and ahead of the ailerons for actuation under control of the pilot. The aeroelastic control flaps operate with the ailerons to induce supplementary aerodynamic force to augment the effectiveness of lateral and directional control during high stress manuevers at high dynamic pressures, but do not rely on wing sensors such as accelerometers coupled with a computer for automatic operation.
A fighter airplane having a fuselage and wings supported and extending from the fuselage, said wings having leading and trailing edges, said fighter airplane designed for high dynamic pressure producing flight maneuvers, the improvement comprising, in combination, outboard ailerons mounted at the trailing edges of the wings at or near the wing tips for movement up or down with respect to the wing under the control of the pilot, control means operable by the pilot to move said ailerons, outboard aeroelastic control flaps mounted on the leading edge of the...
