A method of reducing the bending moment effect of wind gust loads acting on the wing of an aircraft involves adjusting the aerodynamic configuration of the wing so as to alter the distribution of lift generated by the wing during phases of flight in which critical wind gusts are expected to occur. Particularly, during climb and descent phases of flight below cruise altitude, the lift generated by outboard portions of the wings is reduced while the lift generated by inboard portions of the wings is increased. Thereby, the 1 g basis load acting on the outb...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A method of reducing the influence of a total load acting on the wings of an aircraft, wherein said total load includes a 1 g basis load and a variable wind gust load, wherein said wings each respectively include an outer wing portion and an inner wing portion, and wherein at least one of said inner and outer wing portions of each one of said wings has a variable lift geometry, said method comprising the following steps:flying said aircraft in a climb phase from take-off up to a cruising altitude, in a cruise phase substantial...
