Also, the flap assembly can be deployed to increase lift for the purpose of utilizing substantially less runway during take-off.
In combination with an aircraft wing, said aircraft wing having a leading edge and a trailing edge, said aircraft wing having a top surface and an undersurface, said undersurface being substantially planar, a flap assembly hingedly mounted on a hinge axis on said undersurface, said flap assembly including a single flap, said flap being essentially planar, said flap being elongated and narrow and when deployed against the airstream causes substantial resistance to the moving of the aircraft wing through the air, said flap being movable from a stowage posi...
