A wing mounted yaw control device is disclosed. The wing mounted yaw control device includes a spoiler hingedly mounted on a first wing surface and a deflector hingedly mounted on a second wing surface. A deployment mechanism is provided to effect simultaneous deployment of the spoiler and deflector. During operation, the spoiler and deflector are selectively deployed in order to impart an unbalanced drag force on one wing, thereby imparting the desired yaw moment to an aircraft in flight.
1. An apparatus for imparting yaw moment to an air vehicle in flight, comprising;a deployable spoiler mounted upon an upper aerodynamically continuous wing surface, said spoiler being mounted upon said wing surface by a hinge, said hinge preventing the passage of air between said spoiler and said wing surface upon deployment of said spoiler; a deployable deflector mounted upon a lower aerodynamically continuous wing surface, said deflector being mounted on said lower wing surface for deployment in an opposite manner with respect to said spoiler; said def...
