A method and apparatus for controlling the blowing of compressed air from an aerodynamic structure such as an aircraft wing or helicopter rotor blade and thus controlling the aerodynamic properties of the wing comprises a narrow slot (13) in the upper surface (15) of the structure near its trailing edge (14). Inside the wing (12) is a chamber (23) that is connected to the narrow slot (13) in the wing surface (15). The chamber (23) houses a compressed air conduit (16) for supplying and holding compressed air. A passageway (25) connects the conduit (16) to...
[ Wherefore the following is claimed:] [1.] An apparatus for ejecting a controlled stream of fluid from a slot formed in the surface of an aerodynamic structure to control the aerodynamic properties of the structure, said apparatus comprising a source of fluid to be ejected from the slot, a passageway communicating between said source of fluid and the slot for delivering a flow of fluid to the slot, a shutter cooperatively associated with said passageway, said shutter being movable between a closed position at least partially disposed in said passageway ...
