Aircraft trailing edge devices, including devices having forwardly positioned hinge lines, and associated methods are disclosed. An aircraft system in accordance with one embodiment of the invention includes a wing and a trailing edge device coupled to the wing. The trailing edge device can be movable relative to the wing between a stowed position and a deployed position, with the trailing edge device having a leading edge, a trailing edge, an upper surface, and a lower surface. The upper surface can have an intersection point with the wing when the trai...
We claim: 1. A method for operating an aircraft wing, comprising:moving a wing trailing edge device from a stowed position to a deployed position by rotating the trailing edge device about a hinge line located forward of an intersection point between an upper surface of the trailing edge device and the wing so as to open an airflow gap between a leading edge of the trailing edge device and the wing; andallowing freestream air to pass though the gap while the trailing edge device is in the deployed position; whereinthe trailing edge device has a trailing ...
