Systems and methods for tracing aircraft vortices. One method includes directing a tracer from a first aircraft into a vortical flow generated by the first aircraft. The method can further include detecting a characteristic corresponding to the presence of the tracer directed into the vortical flow. Based at least in part on the detected characteristic, the method can include directing the flight of the first aircraft, or a second aircraft following the first aircraft, or both.


We claim: 1. A method for identifying aircraft vortical flows, comprising: directing a tracer from a first aircraft into a vortical flow generated by the first aircraft, wherein the tracer includes a balloon at least partially filled with gas; detecting a characteristic corresponding to the presence of the tracer directed into the vortical flow; and based at least in part on the detected characteristic, directing the flight of the first aircraft, or a second aircraft following the first aircraft, or both. 2. The method of claim 1, further comprising:...
