A wing flap assembly having a contoured upper forward surface portion of the flap being arranged to reduce adverse effects of a wake producing device, such as a landing gear or a flap track faring, positioned upstream of the slot, when the flap is in its highlift slotted position. The contoured area has a moderately greater slot gap width, and relatively sharper curvature at a nose end of the contoured flap surface portion to produce a desired pressure distribution where recovery begins at a further upstream location on the flap.
An airfoil flap assembly comprising: a. a main airfoil having a leading edge portion, a trailing edge portion, an upper surface and a lower surface; b. a trailing edge flap having a leading edge flap portion, a trailing edge flap portion, and an upper flap surface, said flap having a stowed position at the trailing edge portion of the main airfoil, and being moveable to a deployed position where an upper forward flap surface portion and the trailing edge portion of the main airfoil form a slot having a slot width dimension; c. said flap having an optimiz...
