A new hinge fairing design for control surfaces such as ailerons, elevators, and rudders. By staggering the two curved hinge fairings, one mounted to the fixed airfoil and the other to the leading edge of the control surface, a curving load path is opened up that allows installation of hinge fittings and actuators without having to make cut-outs in the curved fairings. This principle makes it possible to keep the control surface faired and sealed over its entire span and during its entire motion range. This improves the effectiveness of the control surfa...
A system for providing a smooth transition between a fixed airfoil of an aircraft and a movable control surface mounted on the fixed airfoil, said control surface having a neutral position and being movable in a first direction to a first deployed position and in a second opposite direction to a second deployed position, said system comprising: first and second fairings carried by the airfoil and the control surface, respectively; and first and second edge portions carried by, and fixed in position relative to, the airfoil and the control surface, respec...
