An active flaperon assembly for a wing includes a sheet of flexible material deployed near an intersection between a primary lift surface of a wing and the surface of a flap. The sheet is mechanically linked to the flap such that it is withdrawn from and extended into the air flow over the wing, the extent of projection varying as a function of the downward deflection of the flap. An actuator generates mechanical oscillations in the sheet.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. An active flaperon assembly for a wing, the wing including:(a) a main wing portion providing at least one primary lift surface; and(b) a flap hingedly attached to said main wing portion such that said flap can be deployed between a normal position in which said flap provides a flap surface which is substantially a continuation of said primary lift surface and a downwardly deflected position in which said flap surface is inclined downwards relative to said primary lift surface,the active flaperon assembly comprising:(i) a she...
