Passive removal of suction air for producing a laminar flow, and associated systems and methods are disclosed. One such method includes forming a laminar flow region over an external surface of an aircraft by drawing air through the external surface and into a plenum. The method can further include passively directing the air from the plenum overboard the aircraft. For example, the air can be passively directed to a region external to the aircraft having a static pressure lower than a static pressure in the plenum, as a result of the motion of the aircra...
I claim: 1. A method for controlling aircraft external flow, comprising:forming a laminar flow region over an external surface of an aircraft by drawing air through the external surface into a plenum, wherein drawing air through the external surface into the plenum includes:drawing a first portion of the air through a first section of the external surface having a first porosity;drawing a second portion of the air through a second section of the external surface having a second porosity different than the first porosity; andcollecting the first and secon...
